BARBARA COLE FEATURED IN MY MODERN MET: PHOTOGRAPHER USES 150-YEAR-OLD PHOTO TECHNIQUE TO CREATE PAINTERLY VINTAGE-LOOKING PORTRAITS
Canadian photographer Barbara Cole is featured on My Modern Met, a blog spotlighting the best artists who are on the pulse of contemporary art.
"Fine art photographer Barbara Cole is known for her artistic underwater photography. But when the temperatures in her native Canada dip low enough that her pool is unusable for this type of photoshoot, she needs to pivot. This is where her series Shadow Dancing was born. This ongoing series of wet collodion photographs marries Cole's modern vision with a turn-of-the-century technique."
Janna Watson Poems opens on Saturday February 10, 2024 at Bau-Xi Vancouver. The artist will be in attendance.

"It's almost like making a sculpture," she said. "It's so tactile. I loved it. I loved the feeling of working with the photographs with my hands rather than clicking a shutter. That felt way too mechanical."
