Mike Brodie used to be a photographer. Well… He used to take photographs. When he turned 18, Mike decided to go ‘trainhopping’ – riding freight trains across the United States of America. These candid, poignant and honest photographs are his documentation of that journey.
One would think that with such an eye and such a great piece of work under his belt that Brodie would continue down this photographic path. Instead, he now works as a motor mechanic because photography he says, just never really excited him that much.
To each their own we suppose! At least we have these amazing images to look at as testament to Brodie’s travels on the railroad.
