In Rooms: The Polaroids of Brittany Markert
Brittany Markert received her B.S in Mathematics from Santa Clara University in 2010. She currently volunteers at International Center of Photography where she is self-taught in traditional darkroom printing. In-Rooms, her current photography project, utilizes the confined and often anonymous space of a room to spotlight the emotional and surreal aspects of the human experience. Growing up, she had a fascination with abandoned buildings and hotel rooms, intrigued by the mysterious histories and the various characters that had once occupied it. Her portraits and narratives similarly channel the history of emotion and multitude of personalities that exists within each of her subjects. Brittany resides in Brooklyn, NY.
