BRITTANY BEIERSDORF ROSS was born in Dallas, Tx. As a child, she traveled with her mother to England to visit the rest of her family and at the age of thirteen, Brittany moved to the valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This place served as a sanctuary and inspiration for Brittany. During high school she became very interested in filmmaking as an artistic medium. Upon graduation from high school, Brittany attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and later went on to earn a Bachelors of Fine Art in Photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Brittany is a lover of old Virginia and lives among her heritage lands with her son on a property called the Perch outside of Middleburg, Virginia.
Brittany has traveled to many places, yet recalls Virginia as a metaphor to invoke the unknown. Her last bodies of work discuss mystery and inner prophecy leading to shamanic insight and creative awakening, archetypes and mythos connecting visionary experiences within image capturing. Brittany is currently working on a project that centers on Mongolia as the cultural landscape and resonance of inner memory, a series of photographs and videos that explore the multi dimensions of finding one’s sacred link. A visual prayer, a voyage of the heart, a reconnaissance of community, family, love and abundance of Spirit. Brittany lived with the family of Aisholpan, an Eagle Huntress in the faraway province of Bayan Olgii. She went on a pilgrimage to the sacred sites around the Gobi Desert, and merged her evocative, visceral shamanic path with initiations and ancient ways that shed light upon otherworldly phenomena.
