I have long enjoyed the photography of Cole Barash, and I also admire his journey from professional snowboard to world renowned photographer. His work is always captivating and original. Now his newest project and show is another great departure for him. Entitled “Six Girls Six Cities”. This group of work in made up entirely of double exposure shots, where each roll of film is exposed twice resulting in a random collage of imagery. I will leave you with a few of Cole’s words below and some of my favorite images from the series.
“I generally do not love double exposures, however I felt this process of a cohesive vision all the way through combined with the organic process of the unknown suited it well. After I had finished the last city I boarded the plane in São Paulo and realized I had no idea if any of it would work, I had no idea if any of the film had fogged or if any of the x-rays fucked anything up. I had no way to check it or back it up—it was all based off of gut reaction when photographing and having faith the process would work.”
