Publisher Comments:

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 camera stuffed behind a carseat.

Brodie spent years crisscrossing the U.S. documenting his experiences, now appreciated as one of the most impressive archives of American travel photography. When asked about his approach to travel and photography Brodie has said "sometimes I take a train the wrong way or...whatever happens a photo will come out of it, so it doesn't really matter where I end up."

When I first became aware of Mike Brodie, i was obsessed. My world couldn't be more opposite than the one depicted in his photographic collection "A Period of Juvenile Prosperity" but the pictures speak to everyone. A very important documentation of travel and life as seen by the "Polaroid Kidd."
