true grit via mike brodie

I sat here for a while trying to think of what I would call this post. "A period of Juvenile Prosperity" as The Guardian called it didn't feel deep enough, the word adventure didn't feel expansive enough and "photography" under sells the heartbeat of this beautiful experience.

Yes. Experience. This collection of images by Mike Broadie is moving. Starting at age 18, Brodie began riding the railroad. Five years later he returned with an immersive and stirring collection of true grit. Life on the tracks.
