Brand-new gallery Casemore Kirkeby—the latest venture from Julie Casemore and gallerist Stefan Kirkeby, set to open soon in the Dogpatch area of San Francisco—chose Todd Hido for its first collaboration. Images of the fine-boned Khrystyna Kazakova—Oakland-based photographer Hido’s model and muse—are always archetypal and often feminine: the come-hither seductress, the fecund mother, the ’50s-era Holly Golightly. Nearly 25 of Hido’s archival photographs are on display via the gallery at Paris Photo Los Angeles at Paramount Pictures Studios early this month (May 1-3), alongside 264 other prestigious artists hailing from as far afield as Iran and Argentina.
