Brad Perkins’ photography asks two questions: “what’s in there?” and “what happened here?” He likes to tell stories of places and things that have been ignored, neglected or destroyed. Some of his photography can be classified as urban landscape, but sometimes it has no genre other than “interesting.” He is based in Chicago and travels frequently.
