Brittainy Newman
Photographer

My name is Brittainy Newman and I am currently pursuing a BFA in photojournalism at Rochester Institute of Technology. I use photography as a means to document the world around me. My choice of subject comes from a place of intuition and is impulsed by a natural desire to partake in the stories that unfold around me. I seek the unknown and I look for the light within the shadows, the stories beneath the surface, and the uncommon in the common. My goal is to use my camera like Alice’s rabbit hole, to open an unexplored world, a place of curious self expression, and most importantly, a place where new stories are created.

I truly believe in the power of storytelling to create understanding. I think about who is listening, who isn’t, and why. Topics that interest me range from family and unusual career choices to themes of loss and sacrifice.
