Mariah Brinton was born in Maine in the early 80’s, and lived in Maine and New York as a child. She received her BFA undergraduate degree in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2004. She also studied photography in New York and London—places that greatly influenced her work. Her style was formed from the time spent as a teenager exploring the streets of NYC with a 35mm Pentax in hand. Culture, people, spaces, personal style and nature grab her attention in magical ways. She enjoys capturing individuals in their element, in their favorite places and how those spaces support who they are. She is a photographer who enjoys taking pictures of landscapes without human presence as much as she loves how humans interact with the spaces around them. She currently resides in Central Maine with her daughter and is enjoying the influence of nature and the seasons on her life and work as a photographer and mother.
My artistic influences are about the yin & yang energy in life—the brazen and the shy.
