The State of America

  • Photographer
    Todd Bradley

The American dream as we once knew it is dead. The US is still
racially divided 53 years after the Civil Rights Act was passed.
There is a major culture shift happening in our nation with women
and men exposing sexual misconduct in the workforce. Americans
are not learning about their rights as citizens. These things, and
others have caused our role as a super power within the world to
change.

Todd Bradley (1970, Detroit, USA) has lived in San Diego for over 30 years; 20 of those with Walter, Todd’s husband, and their 2 Rat Terriers; Gus and Hank. Self-taught with occasional classes and workshops; he draws inspiration from photographers Lori Nix and David Levinthal. As an artist, Todd uses different mediums and styles to express his views. Todd’s work focuses on decay, whether it is organic, structures, or our society.
Todd believes the current state of photography is mirroring the early 1900’s when Kodak introduced the Brownie camera to the masses. Today, we have the cell phone.
