The Polaroid Kidd.
Photography courtesy of Mike Brodie, AKA The Polaroid Kidd!
His images REALLY stood out to me - I think it was combination of many things. The colors in his images, the stories that they tell, and the incredible insight that it gives.
This is a quote from an interview with the photographer :
"Most of these folks were once inhabitants of a small beach side community in Bugress, Maine. Most being adopted children and middle class run-aways. But they're shanty little homes were giving the town a bad image and were forced to be leveled to make room for a blanket of high rise condos. So I guess the handfull of polaroids I have of these people would be the only true documentation of the diaspora of this once thriving group of whatever you want to call em."
