"I like it when it's cold, rainy, raw, and unpredictable. When the elements juxtapose and challenge my eye is what drives me most. I am not interested in the predictable and delivering to the masses. I want to portray the world as moments that may be overlooked in this fast society we live in today."
"Cole Barash has created a language for himself with his camera. A stream of images, sharp and electrifying. The quality of his early work, mainly within the snowboard industry, turned Cole from precocious upstart to professional photographer almost overnight. In any environment Cole’s vision is guided by passion and precision. It reflects both his intensity and his creative vision. Pure expression. Abstract vision. Creative impulse into art. He currently resides in Brooklyn, New York."
