Opening reception: Friday, May 3, 6 -10 PM
Fuchs Projects is pleased to announce the debut solo exhibition of photographs by Brittany Markert. Come join us on Friday, the 3rd of May, for the reception!
Markert’s “In Rooms” series reflects the artist’s interest in the themes of identity, intimacy, memory and loss. Her photographs, taken in isolated, unidentifiable spaces, are an evocative study of subjects withdrawn from society. Printing each image herself in the darkroom, she vignettes memories in haunting darkness and draws viewers deeply into every moment. Using long exposures and movement, she creates an unsettling feeling of tension within the body, each frame a moment gasping for air. Markert captures man’s internal conflict, examining our perception of reality and identity through the use of self-portraits. After cleverly orchestrating each scene and her subjects, Markert spontaneously enters the frame at the last second, provoking organic reactions from her subjects. Sequential images allude to the mind’s obsessive tendency to recollect the past and interpret reality. In Rooms draws out the viewer’s voyeuristic desire and invites us to experience and contemplate this visual diary.
Brittany Markert (b. 1987, Torrance, CA) 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.
Markert currently resides in Brooklyn, NY.

randomlyamusingmusings asked: how is it hard or easy to walk the fine line when doing your images when collaborating with people in such an intimate way? PS i like the work miss :)
Similar to a scene in a film, I direct the images to occur in the moment.. For the most part I know exactly what I want the image to look like and In some humorous or round about way take my subjects to that moment quickly and then instantaneously change the mood in the room. It’s easy to walk this fine line when your desire is to create art. I don’t think of the images in any other way.. perhaps for the subjects the line is less clear but I think as a photographer it’s my responsibility to make the exchange professional and straight-forward. I also only work with people I feel connected to, makes it much easier
