Brodie

Mike Brodie is a busy man right now. The 28-year old’s first monograph, A Period of Juvenile Prosperity, was just published by Twin Palms, and he opens an exhibition under the same name tonight (3/7) at Yossi Milo. Tomorrow night (3/8), Brodie has a book signing at Dashwood, and on March 16th, a show of the same work will be exhibited in Los Angeles at M+B, followed by another book signing at Family Books on the 17th.

With so much going on, we caught a couple moments of Brodie’s time to have him explain to us the story behind some of his photographs.
