David Jo Bradley’s Cabbage Patch Politics series

David Jo Bradley is an Australian documentary photographer based in London. Of this confronting photo series, Cabbage Patch Politics, he says: ‘It’s an autobiographical documentation of my experiences with the cultural phenomenon of Bogans. I suppose you could say it’s a love story: I’ve always had a timid fascination for these rampant beast-people. As a small boy I lived in a rural town in Western Australia: going to school with Bogans meant I learnt their culture’.

‘Later, when I was a city kid with a camera, I started talking to them in bars, getting drunk with them. They would accept me, and I would photograph them. They liked me because I bought them drinks and ran amok with them, I suppose. Cabbage Patch Politics (the name relating to the callow nature of Bogan interaction) are photographs from 08 and 09, in bars, festivals, parties and sitting around Bogan houses’.
