Bradly Dever Treadaway is a lens-based artist whose work explores the complex and often fractured nature of intergenerational communication in the 21st century. His work centers around the idea that technological evolution, natural disasters, mental health challenges, and societal shifts have created a disconnect between generations and families. Treadaway’s art and photography often reflect his experiences growing up within these equations. He frequently uses his family archives as source material to create his art and photos, exploring how memories and vernacular ephemera can be reframed and reimagined into art objects.
Treadaway is a professor of photography, a filmmaker, and a curator based in Brooklyn. He is a Fulbright Scholar to Italy and holds an MFA from Louisiana State University.
