Photographer Captures the Nomadic Life of Train Hoppers

Traveling across more than 50,000 miles through 46 states, Arizona-born photographer Mike Brodie documented the nomadic lifestyle of freight train hoppers and squatters. Brodie, armed with a simple Polaroid camera, captured his companions through intimate portraits set against ever-changing landscapes. His photographs reveal the raw reality of his travels: the dirt, the blood, the struggles and, ultimately, a community of travelers who share the challenges and triumphs of life on the road. The project, titled "A Period of Juvenile Prosperity""is currently on show at The Yossi Milo gallery in New York until April 6, and also at The M+B Gallery in Los Angeles from now until May 11
