Below is a quote from a blog by Kim Weston. I thought she put the basis of his work pretty clearly. His images all make me think of inner city life. "Looking at his surroundings, Bradford looks through the many layers of discarded papers to find recycled memories. He explores the many different layers of living in the black community. He picks and scrapes the signs off the walls and gates. Those collections of papers are his resource materials to create large collages that take on the look of large scale paintings."
