Toronto-based artist Barbara Cole is featured on CNN Style in a compelling article by Ana Rosado. Titled "From Nirvana to 'weightless worlds," the article begins with a brief history of the evolution of the practice of underwater photography and highlights Cole as a major contributor to the practice. She is described as an artist who "ingeniously [uses] water as an artistic tool to transform reality" and "[takes] advantage of the submarine environment to create a dream-like alternate dimension."  

My goal since I began to exhibit in 1984 was to push the medium -- to paint with a camera, resisting the realism that is normally expected of photography.
