Brittainy Newman is a visual journalist from New York City and, since graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology’s Photojournalism program in 2018, has joined The New York Times for a year-long photography newsroom fellowship.  

Brittainy is fascinated by ideas that spark new perspectives on familiar challenges. She revels in taking the world we all know and turning it around by viewing it from a strange, but illuminating new angle. Topics that interest her range from family and unusual career choices to themes of loss and sacrifice.

In 2019, Brittainy's photo of attendees at Pride March in New York City was included in The New York Times Year in Pictures. In 2018, she placed gold in the Individual Multimedia category in 73rd College Photographer of the Year competition and awarded an Award of Excellence in the Portrait category. In 2017, Brittainy was selected by Photo Boite as one of their 30 Under 30 women photographers and that same year, she attended the Eddie Adams Workshop. Her work has been recognized by National Geographic's Daily Dozen, The New York Times, PDN Edu and Smithsonian Magazine.
