In 2002 a 17 year old girl climbed on the roof of a train to reach “for free” one of his friends in Alabama.

This is the prologue to an adventure that will bring Mike Brodie to illegally  travel for five years in the United States.

In this long journey Mike portrayed people and situations before with a Polaroid camera, then with a 35 mm one.

It ‘a great American underground documentation, which you can see an extract taken this address: http://www.thepostinternazionale.it/mondo/stati-uniti/viaggio-treno-cinque-anni-mike-brodie.

I recommend you visit, of course, also Mike Brodie‘s website, who has since become a photographer.
