Reseña del editor:

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

his experiences.

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 archives

Biografía 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.
