Những hình ảnh trẻ bụi đời nước Mỹ
Mike Brodie spent five years riding freight trains across America, returning with an astonishing visual record of the teenage 'freighthoppers' that travel the USA illegally, by r ail. Without any formal training in photography, Brodie began documenting his experiences after finding a discarded Polaroid camera behind a car seat.
As a way of keeping in contact with the people he met while traveling, he started posting images to various websites under the name 'The Polaroid Kidd', and a selection of his photographs, spanning 2003-8 have finally been collected in a new book 'A Period of Juvenile Prosperity', published by Twin Palms.
