Photographer Mike Brodie, working under the moniker, The Polaroid Kidd, spent four years traveling the U.S. amassing a large body of work and an extremely unique view of the American lanscape – oft from the perceptive of boxcars and train tracks shared by runaways and disenfranchised youth. Unexpectedly, Brodie quit the medium entirely to become a car mechanic in the Bay Area. Twin Palms publishers will be releasing a critical monograph of his work entitled A Period of Juvenile Prosperity this month.

This volume compiles all of the photographs from Terry Richardson’s wildly successful 2012 show Terrywood, held at the OHWOW gallery in Los Angeles. Terrywood is the photographer’s vision of everything that Hollywood has meant and continues to mean in the public imagination: grand-scale glitz, big-budget glamour-and of course the awards ceremonies, in homage to which Richardson produced a series of ten award statuettes for the show, fashioned in his own bespectacled likeness.
