Far from the fashion scene’s glamorous sets and make-up, these photos by Barbara Cole paint a different image and tell a different story. See more of her works after the cut.
You can really get a kick out of these images by fine art photographer Barbara Cole. Firstly, some of them give out this painting-like effect that distracts you by triggering questions of whether it’s really a photograph or a delicately painted art work on display at some gallery.

Barbara Cole carefully and artistically pieces moments in life into picturesque images. Making use of a Polaroid camera, Cole blurs her otherwise sharp images for a fashion shoot and turns them into painting-like images.
