A Period of Juvenile Prosperity – Mike Brodie

Born 1985 in Arizona, Mike Brodie began photographing in 2004 when he was given a Polaroid camera. Working under the moniker, The Polaroid Kidd, Brodie spent the next four years circumambulating the U.S., amassing an archive that would go on to become one of the few true collections of American travel photography. Having never undergone any formal training, he chose to remain untethered to the pressures and expectations of the art market.

Brodie compulsively documented his explorations, then, as suddenly as he began making photographs, he left the medium behind.

Brodie recently graduated from the Nashville Auto Diesel College and is now working as a mobile diesel mechanic out of his silver ’93 Dodge Ram.  Although he has stopped making photographs, the body of work he made in four short, intense years has left an enduring impact on the photo world.
