Mike Brodie

Born in 1985, Mike Brodie began photographing when he was given a Polaroid camera in 2004. Working under the moniker ‘The Polaroid Kidd,’ Brodie spent the next four years circumambulating the United States, amassing an archive of photographs that make up one of the few, true collections of American travel photography. Brodie made work in the tradition of photographers like Robert Frank, William Eggleston and Stephen Shore, but due to never having undergone any formal training he always remained untethered to the pressures and expectations of art market.

His first cross-country trip brought him to Oakland, CA where he met Paul Schiek, founder of TBW Books. Schiek helped Brodie produce two bodies of work from this (latter) period: Tones of Dirt and Bone and A Period of Juvenile Prosperity, which have been exhibited in galleries and become books. Although A Period of Juvenile Prosperity was published and exhibited first, the images in Tones of Dirt and Bone were produced earlier, when Brodie used Polaroid film, before he switched to the 35 mm format of A Period of Juvenile Prosperity. “The 35mm format let me shoot more candidly and truly capture real moments, not staged portraits.”

Brodie compulsively documented his exploration of the tumultuous world of transient subcultures without regard to how the photographs would exist beyond him. After feeling as though he documented all that he could of his subject, his insatiable wanderlust found a new passion, and as quickly as he began making photographs, he has left the medium to continue in his constant pursuit of new adventures.”I do not take photographs, I have begun a new adventure. I started building my very own machine shop to accommodate the remanufacturing of diesel engines.”

In 2008, Brodie received the Baum Award for American Emerging Artists and has a forthcoming book to be published by Steidl, as well as numerous international shows. Brodie recently graduated from the Nashville Auto Diesel College (NADC) and is now working as a diesel mechanic. Although Brodie has stopped making photographs, the body of work he made in only four short years has left a huge impact on the photo world, and is now being made available to the public.

 A Period of Juvenile Prosperity was included in lists of best photobooks of 2013.  Martin Parr and Gerry Badger call the photographs of A Period of Juvenile Prosperity “unashamedly romantic and warm toned”.Photographer Alec Soth, writing in The Telegraph, included A Period of Juvenile Prosperity in his top ten photobooks of 2013:

I really wanted to dislike this book, but I was completely won over by the pictures, design and even Brodie’s essay. “I don’t want to be famous,” he writes, “but I hope this book is remembered for ever.” I have a feeling it will be.

Alec Soth


The Minnesota-based, internationally-revered photographer Alec Soth recently released his ninth book, entitled ‘I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating.’ But in the summer of 2017, less than two years before the book’s release, Alec wasn’t dreaming up plans for a new series of photographs. In fact he was doing the opposite – he was considering walking away from photography altogether.



With the exhibition “Super BOOKS”, autonomous artist publications are being presented on a larger scale in Munich. Over two days, more than 50 artists, designers and alternative publishers will exhibit their productions in Haus der Kunst’s Terrace Hall.

“Super BOOKS” is a tradition of independent, individual places that have been formed since the 1960s in the environment of the international, post avant-garde art scene for artists’ publications and their reception. It is no coincidence that artists’ publications are also an expression of the emancipatory intention of democratizing art and its market and building new communication and distribution networks.

“Super BOOKS” is part of the current exhibition “Archives in Residence: AAP Archive Artist Publications” and is a collaborative project between Haus der Kunst, AAP Archive Artist Publications, the Academy of Fine Arts Munich and fructa space, Munich.
