Photographs like paintings of Barbara Cole
• Photos as pictures of Barbara Cole
Anyone surprised to see a picture, similar to the pictures, but even more surprising is the photographs that look like paintings! That such work is at the photographer from Canada Barbara Cole. Self-taught photographer, she not only defied reality, she started to do this using a Polaroid!
"I fell in love with Polaroid at the end of 1987" - says Cole - "Before him, I experimented with the camera Specter, I liked the mood that they created, the warm colors and the creamy palette."
"However, it was too difficult to work with this camera, and I refused it. At the end of 1993, I happened to see a remarkable picture of Lucian Freud. It was a large man, sitting on the floor, seen from the back. The image began to haunt me. It seemed he crossed the line separating art and photography. After seeing the work of Freud, I have reviewed the possibilities. Then, I began to gently manipulate the image, add depth, to determine the size and put into effect, "painting", which made of my pictures these pictures. "
