After recently discovering Brad Westcott’s photographs, it seemed logical to get in touch and find out a little more about his practice. His images reflect his experiences and encounters of the everyday and document the adventures that he finds himself involved with when travelling.
Whilst he doesnt work or study as a photographer, Westcott developed an interest in photography at the age of 13 and after studying photography at high school level he has been experimenting by himself ever since…

“My main inspirations and motivations come from my friends, the railroad, and skateboarding. I get really stoked on seeing my friends photos and all of the awesome things they are working on. The railroad is so rich with history and tells a never ending story. Freight trains serve many different purposes than the obvious ones. A boxcar can serve as a moving canvas for graffiti and moniker artists as well as a shelter for a lone hobo to roll across the country in.”
Brad is currently working on a book about freight train monikers and some new zines…
Issue #2 of my zine “OVER & OUT!” will be out sometime next month.
