At 17 Mike Brodie hopped his first train close to his
home in Pensacola, FL thinking he would visit a
friend in Mobile, AL. Instead the train went in the
opposite direction to Jacksonville, FL. Days later,
Brodie rode the same train home, arriving back
where he started. Nonetheless, it sparked something
and Brodie began to wander across the U.S. by
any means that were free - walking, hitchhiking and
train hopping. Shortly after, Brodie found a
Polaroid camera stuffed behind a carseat. With no
training in photography and coke-bottle glasses, the
instant camera was an opening for Brodie to document
As a way of staying in touch with his transient community,
Brodie shared his pictures on various websites
gaining the moniker "The Polaroid Kidd" [sic].
When the Polaroid film he used was discontinued,
Brodie switched to 35mm film and a sturdy 1980's
camera. Brodie spent years crisscrossing the U.S.
amassing a collection, now appreciated as one of the
most impressive archivesBiografía del autor:
Brodie's first recognition as a photographer came
when in 2008, unbeknownst to him, his work was
submitted to and then received the Baum Award for
An Emerging American Photographer; this lead to a
growing awareness of his work. Unfazed by this initial
success and having never fully identified as a photographer
Brodie chose to remain untethered to the
expectations of the art market. Brodie recently
graduated from the Nashville Auto-Diesel College
(NADC) and is now working as a mobile mechanic
in his silver '93 Dodge Ram truck.
