Underwater Photographs that Look Like Oil Paintings of Bathing Women | Barbara Cole


Figure transformation has been a predominant theme in my work. Over the past thirty years I have been operating as a painter but employing traditional photographic tools, says Barbara Cole, a fine art photographer from Toronto whose whimsical take on underwater photography will certainly make you think twice.

“Over the past decade, my practice has explored the medium of water, which has become a natural lens that refocuses and reinterprets my painterly aesthetic,” Barbara adds. “Water allows me to move the human figure in unconventional ways. Photography affords me the ability to play with notions of time and place.
