About A Period of Juvenile Prosperity
A Period of Juvenile Prosperity was born by accident. When he was 17, Brodie hopped on a train thinking he was going to visit his friend in Mobile, AL. Instead, the train was going in the opposite direction, to Jacksonville, FL. After a few days, Brodie rode the train back to where he started and this back and forth sparked a desire to wander around the US by train, by foot, hitchhiking... During his wanderings, he found a Polaroid camera with which he would start documenting his experiences, people he would meet whilst roaming around and anything that came his would and caught his eye. The result is a prolific collection of images that would end up creating a name for Brodie, or rather, a nickname: 'The Polaroid Kidd'. Years later Brodie would switch from a Polaroid to 35mm film and would collect a very impressive amount of portrait a travel photography documenting his wanderings.
