March 21, 2012
Liberal Arts Senior Lecturer Justyna Badach BFA '94 (Photography) was awarded the Adjunct Faculty Scholarship by the board of the Society for Photographic Education Mid-Atlantic Region (SPEMA). Her work, "Bachelor Portraits," was selected as a 2012 National Scholarship winner for the Society for Photographic Education.
Badach was born in the Soviet Union. She said of her series, "I came to this country as a refugee (and) I am still trying to make sense of why it is that I do not feel at home in the world. I am interested in people who are also grappling with loneliness, marginalization and how they deal with the idea of home."
