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 is currently a BFA Photography student with a double major in Anthropology at Brigham Young University. 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 has been published online in Brigham Young University media and in print for The Daily Herald newspaper. 

Brinnan is currently based in Salt Lake City, Utah.
