Back in 2003, photographer Mike Brodie (Polaroid Kidd) went on a journey across America, documenting his travels through photography. Although his mode of transport consisted of hopping freight trains with no set destination in mind. The trip was initially a trip of self-discovery, but a friend handed him a Polaroid SX-70 in order to capture his life journey. However Polaroid discontinued the SX-70 specialty film, so subsequently, Brodie got himself a Nikon F3 35mm camera. His photography captures the lives of squatters, hobos, train hoppers and others who are out seeking true adventure. Since venturing around the countryside, Brodie’s work has been featured around the world, including the 2006 Paris International Photo Fair.
