Brittainy Newman is a visual journalist from New York City and since graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology’s Photojournalism program in 2018, Brittainy is currently working as a Video Intern at OZY Media.
She 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 a strangely enlightening new angle. Topics that interest her range from family and unusual career choices to themes of loss and sacrifice.
In 2017, Brittainy was selected by Photo Boite as one of their 30 Under 30 women photographers. That same year, she attended the Eddie Adams Workshop and her portrait of a reborn doll owner was a finalist for the American Experience category in the 15th annual Smithsonian Magazine photo contest. Her work has been recognized by National Geographic's Daily Dozen, and in 2018, Brittainy was awarded the Nikon Award for Best Portfolio in the student-run RIT NPPA What We Do Competition.
Brittainy worked as the Public Relations representative of the RIT Chapter of the National Press Photographer's Association,
with the goal of boosting the chapter's social and web presence amongst the student photojournalism community, and worked as a photographer for University News
, RIT's daily news publication.
