Brad Mirman, renowned for his work as a screenwriter and director, has always had a deep passion for street photography. After a successful career in the film industry, he embarked on a global journey to capture the diverse tapestry of street cultures across the world. The culmination of this five-year odyssey is his latest book, “Street Life,” a visual tribute that celebrates the breathtaking diversity of global street cultures.
Contained within this 200-page hardcover book are photographs that cast a spotlight on a world often hidden from the mainstream—a world where individuals dwell on the outskirts of society and forge their own unique path playing by their rules. Through the lens of his camera, Mirman brings their distinct lifestyles into sharp focus, documenting a realm inhabited by gangsters, lowriders, bikers, the homeless, tattoo artists, and captivating women.
“Street Life” represents Brad Mirman’s debut book, an exploration of the Los Angeles landscape through a unique and symbolic point of view. As a director and screenwriter, Mirman sees each photograph as a narrative, and every image as a plunge into a culture and a way of life. With over 200 black and white photographs, photographer Brad Mirman unveils a West Coast as never seen before – an evocative and authentic story. These timeless images serve as visual tales, each capturing a distinct emotion and essence of this exceptional world.
“My camera is my passport to different worlds and cultures. It allows me to go places I would never dare go without it. Street Photography helps me step outside my world, outside what is comfortable and allows me the see things and meet others who I would otherwise never meet.” – Brad Mirman
