Pauline Boldt is an internationally published photographer based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Her work documents people, food and places, and the natural intersection of all three. Though the atmosphere and content of her work are deeply influenced by her travels, Pauline had the opportunity to train alongside renowned UK portrait photographer, Harry Borden and award-winning food, travel, and still-life photographer, Jonathan Gregson, in London.
“Her easy reportage style makes for fresh spontaneous imagery. She shoots from the heart and keeps compositions loose and very natural. There’s a rawness and honesty that I love.”
MATT BEAVEN, SUNDAY PUBLISHING, LONDON
After years working abroad in photography, project management, and creative direction, Pauline opened up a strategic marketing firm, 26 Projects (est. 2015), located in the historic Exchange District in downtown Winnipeg.
26 Projects focuses on being strategic and creative partners, working with groups and individuals to find innovative and measurable solutions in an atmosphere of collaboration, passion and expertise. The team of extraordinary strategists and instigators is consistently pushing boundaries with bold creativity and brave action, giving full commitment to every project and producing top-quality work that clients love. The studio works globally out of Winnipeg, Canada, propelling brands by bringing ideas to life with intention and meaning.
“I had the opportunity to work with Pauline and her team at 26 Projects on two separate projects over the course of several years. Over that time, I was consistently impressed with their professionalism and creativity. But more than that, I was blown away by Pauline’s dedication to excellence, making sure that her team produces the best work possible and that her clients are thrilled with the result.”

Her love of food and desire to capture the cultures and places that support it are made apparent in the cookbook she co-authored with Parisian chef Brian Defehr: Les Marchés Français: Four Seasons of French Dishes from the Paris Markets. Published by Running Press, the cookbook is a result of the joint effort between her creative direction, photography, and Brian’s culinary expertise and sensitivity to cooking with the seasons. Pauline has also worked with Red Seal chef, Sharon Steward on yet another exciting Manitoba-based cookbook project called Volume.
“To me, Pauline’s images seek to convey dreamy and pure sensations, innocence of childhood play, wholesome ties to nature, hope, and lack of pretension and artifice.”
