Brad has a creative vision. Clever, insightful, full of structure, yet oddly quirky. His document of the Inland Empire in Southern California has me obsessed by shrubbery. Yes – that fabulous way Southern Californians landscape. He takes the idea of a cypress to a whole new level. Not that that is all the images are about, I don’t want to dismiss the intelligence of the work that way. I find on a human scale, I look at who we are and what we do to control our surroundings, and Brad’s work showcases nicely the way we brick and mortar ourselves into a community. I am drawn to the structuring of the natural world, not only by the work he’s capturing, but how he has photographed it. I love the abstracts. Greenery in a desert. He has a way with the architecture as well, but for me – it’s a perfect shrub.
