Miniature figures were what I turned to when embarking on a project to explore my child-like mind. For reasons unknown, I have always kept a toy dinosaur in my possession from being a child onwards to today. He moves around the house, currently he resides in a pocket of my weekender bag. And I should add, I have yet to photograph him. I guess it’s a porthole back in time to my youth. That dinosaur was reminder of sorts to not be so serious all the time, and be more child-like in my imagination. Bug Transport is the silly thought, What would it be like if bugs were the size of Live-stock and we road them around for transportation?

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.
