In 2015, he was the recipient of Outstanding Early Career Alumni award from James Cook University in Queensland, Australia. Previously an archaeologist with the United States Bureau of Land Management, Brad moved to London in 2008 and began sneaking into lost, forgotten and off-limits places in the city, photographing them, and sharing them with the public.

His work has been featured on worldwide media outlets, including GQ Magazine in the USA, Conversations on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and the BBC in the UK. Dr Garrett’s fifth and latest book entitled Bunker: Building for the End Times, is about the 3.7 million Americans that are prepping on some scale, from stockpiling food and supplies during the coronavirus pandemic to spending thousands or sometimes millions of dollars on a backyard bunker, to joining a prepper community that has already prepared shelters for the next apocalypse.
In the fight to reform capitalism, we have won the battle
of ideas, but are losing the war of substantive action.
