Mike Brodie - A Period Of Juvenile Prosperity
"In 2003 at the age of seventeen Mike Brodie was living in Pensacola, Florida, still at High school and working part time bagging groceries. He decided to visit a friend in Mobile, Alabama choosing to train hop and ride illegally. In fact he ended up getting on the wrong train and travelled for three days in the opposite direction to Jacksonville, Florida. 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, hitch-hiking and train hopping. His photographs are of the rough and ready band of young outsiders he met whilst travelling. The soft, warm portraits reveal a romanticised and bohemian view of the transient community." [LN-CC]
Date a boy who wears black all the time. Date a chain-smoker. Date a boy whose boots are as sharp as knives. Date a boy who cries mascara. Date a boy who hasn’t washed his hair since 1981. Date a boy who collects locks of hair. Date a boy who sings songs about killing you. Date a boy who is now just as old as your dad. Date an ex post-punk evergreen-goth frontman. Date Nick Cave.
