My name is Brittany Carol Moore (Brain), and I am a fine art and portrait photographer native to Birmingham, Alabama. For my art photography I specialize in film, and also work with digital, to produce surreal, dreamlike images. For my portrait work, I mainly use digital to photograph individuals, families, babies, engagements, etc. Aside from portraits, I have worked with numerous clients for various projects with all types of photography- including editorial, real estate, fashion, still life, and event, among others.
As my work outside of art photography is very versatile, please contact me to discuss any of your photography needs. I also take art commissions and custom orders for prints or larger pieces, like my gel medium image transfer windows. Any image you see in the Gallery section of this site is available for purchase in the form of a matted print- sizes 9 x 12, 14 x 18, or 16 x 20.
Below is my Artist Statement, to sum up the idea and processes behind my work...
The goal of my art is to capture beauty and portray it in a surrealistic manner. The other-worldly state of surrealism is a separation from reality where I find the most inspiration. Within this realm, not being bound by the restraints of reality, the imagination is able to wander freely. Traditional black and white 35 millimeter and medium format film, as well as digital photography are what I use to achieve this goal.
Black and white film and digital photography are what I use to portray a world of surrealism. The technique I most often use with film is the in-camera multiple exposure. By separate exposures overlaying onto one frame of film inside the camera, this process creates a very dream-like result after developing. Prints from film photographs are produced by scanning either the negatives or silver gelatin prints, then making giclée reproductions by printing the digital images onto high quality photo paper with a professional inkjet printer. In my digital photography, I explore an array of camera techniques that best illuminate the surreal character of an image. The same printing process is used for digital photographs.
