I was captivated by this dream-like photo series, Reflexion Autour du Bassin (Reflection Around the Basin) by Alain Laboile. For me, it's Tim Walker mixed with Tim Burton with a bit of Ryan McGinley thrown in.
The photos seem like storybook illustrations. There's a carefree spirit about each one. It's like taking a trip into the mind of a child and appreciating its many twists and turns.

Abstract fine art that celebrates old-school photography — darkroom chemicals, light, paper, collage, and the hand of the artist.
In any part of the universe there is a whole universe—Hamlet saw infinite space in a nutshell; William Blake saw a world in a grain of sand, a heaven in a wild flower, eternity in an hour. These photos shimmer with beauty.
A new book reveals 64 images of the much-censored public protests that took place at Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989 — however, to "see" the real images you must use your smartphone or tablet to invert the colors of the printed images so the negatives are seen in "real" colors.

explores the illusions created by an always-on immersive internet connection, and the dreamy hyper-real imagery of tourist destinations as represented by stock photos.
