Canadian Photographer Barbara Cole featured in the Jerusalem Post
Canadian fine art photographer Barbara Cole is internationally recognized for her innovative process and timeless aesthetic. Cole was recently written about by Barry Davis in an article for the Jerusalem Post, which takes us through her beginnings as a young photographer working in a friend's parent's pool, to her recent experiments with shooting in the ocean. The article celebrates Cole's ability to employ the highly technical and precise medium of digital photography to create beautiful, ethereal imagery with a uniquely painterly aesthetic. She is continuously inspired by the underwater realm, and always fully embraces the unexpected in her practice, resulting in a career of unique and compelling photographic series.
[Cole photographs] in conditions that make the end product anything but certain. That, for her, is what it’s all about… “That’s the thing that’s so magical...Every show is different, and every time I shoot I don’t know how the water is going to be, or how the people are, or what the lack of gravity is going to do. Sometimes you don’t even need to know that.”
