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.

Editors' Note: Be sure to see the really wonderful black-and-white family album by the same photographer: La Famille
While these double exposure photographs depend on careful preparation and pre-visualization, the final results take off into the land of pure fantasy and imagination.
Using only light, shade and photographic paper, these simple yet beautiful works recall pottery or poetry or even celestial bodies.
An inspiring interview with the creator of this series, which appropriates anonymous found negatives in a unique manner to create thought-provoking new art works.
