The World Through Entryways

Photography by

Ada Bednarz

This exhibit is an on-going study of the world through its Entryways. It explores the nature of doors and windows in a variety of cultures, and aspires to reacquaint you with something that is so ever-present that it often passes unnoticed, yet is also so necessary.

Ada Bednarz is a self-taught travel photojournalist currently based out of New Jersey.  She began photographing during her travels with People to People International, an organization promoting and fostering cultural understanding through student exchange, in order to tell the stories of the cultures, peoples, and places she visited and encountered.  She has since participated in workshops with National Geographic Expeditions, New York Times Journeys, and at the International Center of Photography, to expand upon her knowledge and continue learning from experts in the field of photography.

Ada primarily focuses on photographing places and peoples around the world. However, she occasionally enjoys dabbling in fashion photography because she believes clothing also tells a part of a person or country’s story.

When she is not scouring for potential financial crime as an anti-money laundering investigator, or photographing during her travels, Ada enjoys reading, swimming, hiking, exploring, and spending time with family and friends.
