Self-taught artist, Barbara Cole got acquainted with photography at the age of 19 through her job as a fashion editor for the Toronto Sun. From this experience, she keeps a strong taste for human figure, yet pushes it further by exploring new dimensions.
Using water as a natural lens, her images are distorted, bent in order to reflect an atmosphere. In the manner of the Impressionists, she captures the elusiveness of a moment by investigating the various color shades provided by nature. It results in a spontaneous construction built « in-camera », excluding any further manipulation.
