I’m a father of six. Through my photographic work I celebrate and document my family life : a life on the edge of the world, where intemporality and the universality of childhood meet.
Day to day I create a family album that constitutes a legacy that I will pass on to my children. My work reflects our way of life, revolving around their childhood. My photographs will be the testimony of that. In a way my approach can be considered similar to the one of an ethnologist.
Though my work is deeply personal, it is also accessible, addressing human nature and allowing the viewer to enter my world and reflect on their own childhoods. Fed everyday and shared with the world via the internet, my photographic production has become a means of communication, leading to a questioning about freedom, nudity, being and having.
— Alain Laboile
Emerald waters and sapphire skies—a former oasis of the Eastern Bloc, Lake Balaton forms the setting for this series of vibrantly colorful portraits.
A touching portrait of a woman whose life-long companion has been art. Each day, for 90 years, she has drawn, illustrated, posed and created—doing her small part to bring a little more beauty into the world.
"When I have found my place on a city street or another urban location, I wait for the moment when each figure will harmonize beautifully — and that's when I take my photo."
