Brittany Markert hails from San Francisco, and her stellar photography skills shine through in her most recent collection.

The opening shot looks as though the male model is sucking blood from a young girl's neck. Shrouded in darkness, the man sensually holds the young victim as he licks his lips. The other photos follow this dark-looking aesthetic and entice viewers to click on through the collection in anticipation for what's next. Gloomy, seductive and always intriguing, Brittany Markert's latest collection captures the darker side of human nature.

Implications - This photography induces emotions of release with images that draw viewers away from reality and into a darkened world. Companies would be wise to use similar escapist or surreal aesthetics in their advertising campaigns to gain attention from the stressed-out consumer.
