Barbara Justice is a queer artist who grew up in southern New Mexico and far west Texas. Her interest in photography started at a very young age when she would often look through her grandmothers albums to study old family snapshots. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio. While living in San Antonio, she started and curated exhibitions at Justiceworks Studio (an artist run gallery space) at Blue Star Arts Complex for four years. In 2015 she completed a seven month artist residency at Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, Italy where she visually studied new locations by utilizing many photography based processes including film photography projects, alternative photography processes and book arts. In 2016, Barbara became a member of Film Shooters Collective, an international photography collective that is completely film based. In 2019 Barbara began pursuing her Master of Fine Arts Degree at The University of Wisconsin-Madison where she has incorporated a broad range of methods into her photography practice including creative writing, handmade books, 3D printing, laser etching, printmaking, zines and installation. She was appointed the co-curator of Backspace Art Gallery on the University of Wisconsin campus and was the instructor of record for Digital Photography within the photography department at the university. Currently, Barbara is working at the UW Digital Collections as an assistant digital conversion specialist and doing research for her Master of Arts Exhibition which will take place in the Spring of 2021.
