A Period of Juvenile Prosperity depicts the gritty youth subculture of freight train hoppers and squatters. From 2004 - 2009, Brodie created a prolific body of work which introduces viewers to an alternative lifestyle based on the constant movement of train travel across America.
In Brodie’s images, the world appears warmly colored, slightly faded, and filled with adventure. His travel photographs encapsulate a period of youthful exuberance and unbridled freedom. Although Brodie was never trained, his photographs exemplify a keen eye for composition and follow in the footsteps of artists Robert Frank, William Eggleston and Nan Goldin. His images visualize modern versions of Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn or Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, while also reflecting symbols of a passing era in American culture that include trains, punk aesthetics and Polaroid cameras.
