about brinnan

Brinnan is a visual anthropologist and a documentarian of culture, dedicated to capturing candid and raw photographs which blend beautiful aesthetics with real emotion. Born in South Carolina and growing up traveling from one country to the next, she developed a passion for both photography and anthropology at a young age. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and a double major in Sociocultural Anthropology. She is trained in digital, film, large format, and alternative photography processes, including wet-plate collodion photography. 

For her senior thesis in Anthropology, she spent three months conducting field work in a village in Northern Thailand, where she created the photographic essay Food, Floors, and Fallen Prophets, which was exhibited in the Harris Fine Arts Center in February 2018. Her photographic work has won several awards, including Best in Show at the Kennedy Center Photography competition and awards in Fine Art and Documentary Photography in the 14th Julia Margaret Cameron Competition.

Brinnan is currently based in Roosevelt, Arizona.
