Pauline Boldt is an internationally published photographer based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Her work documents people, food and place, 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 renown 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.”


Pauline is the owner and creative director of a collaborative design studio – 26 Projects (est. 2013), located in the historic Exchange District in downtown Winnipeg. With a focus on branding, marketing strategy, digital, and print design, the studio is able to draw upon a vast archive of original photography, and is distinct in its capacity to create unique and personalized imagery for each project.

Her love of food and desire to capture the cultures and places that support it are made apparent in the cookbook she recently 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 is currently working with Red Seal chef, Sharon Steward on yet another exciting Manitoba-based cookbook project.

“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.”


Pauline’s work has been featured in such places as: Cereal Magazine, Design Sponge, A Cup of Jo, What Katie Ate, Sunday Publishing, Kinfolk, Pure Green Magazine, Airbnb, &London, Fine Lifestyles, The Cellar Door, Covet Magazine, and Fiorentini & Baker.
