MOORHEAD – Brittany Cossette knew the perfect subject for a portrait assignment in one of her photography classes at Minnesota State University Moorhead last fall.

She just didn’t realize at the time that the assignment would get her into an international juried gallery show – or lead to her current relationship with Brian DeMars, the subject of the portrait and a co-worker at Johnny Carino’s restaurant that she got to know better during the 45-minute photo session.

Cossette’s portrait, “Something I Need,” was among the 60 selected out of more than 800 submissions for the recent “Faces” juried show at the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vt.

The 23-year-old native of Barnesville, Minn., took a “roundabout” path to finding photography that started with her high school hopes of pursuing a career in fashion design.

As she neared high school graduation in 2009, Cossette said she wasn’t ready to move to Los Angeles or New York to try to find a break in the competitive industry. Instead, she enrolled at North Dakota State University, taking a year of general courses with the idea that she could start fashion design classes there. Read the rest of this entry →
