Todd Bradley (1970, Detroit, USA) is a contemporary macro and landscape photographer currently residing in San Diego, California. His work concentrates on nature, and urban decay. Todd builds scale model dioramas that become is narratives. Often showing quirkiness, Todd’s aesthetic focuses on detailed features, demonstrating new perspectives to ordinary objects in still time.
Classic photographers Blossfeldt, Weston, and Mapplethorpe undoubtedly have influenced Todd’s work with their clean lines, use of geometry and negative space. Todd brings freshness in his whimsical compositions and subject matter.
For personal projects Todd turns to diorama photography. It’s about keeping his child-like mind active and creative. It’s about lightening his load. It’s about being playful, and happy. And not being so serious all the time. David Levinthal, Lori Nix, and Mathew Albanese are all inspirations when it come to this close macro work.
