With an organic approach to film photography and a clever eye for composition, Cole Barash‘s portraiture and still lifes became known for their candid and spontaneous sense of intimacy. Well acquainted with international subcultures, Barash seeks “subjects where the boundaries are more open, not as seasoned, not done before,” capturing “unpredictable outcomes in a predictable world.”
One of PDN’s top 30 upcoming photographers, Barash’s work has been featured in group shows “Get Gone,” “SILENCE,” “Hot Bed,” “One Eyed Jacks Gallery,” and solo exhibition “Cold Emotions” at Montanero Gallery in New Port, RI. His first monograph book, Talk Story, and accompanying exhibition opened at Brooklyn’s Picture Farm Gallery in July 2014 with a subsequent exhibition at Venice Arts Gallery in LA. Barash’s images have been featured in numerous publications including, Rolling Stone, ESPN Magazine, Relapse Mag, and No Thoughts, among many others.
