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
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, and eternity in an hour. These photos shimmer with beauty.
40 sets of images and an excellent essay exploring the syntax of space, the construct of language, borders, connections, and what is in between.
