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
German photographerhas a new photobook that captures the visual clutter of our man-made environments. The photos — all created in camera — are like wonderfully tricky and complex collages.
Self-taught photographerplays — delightfully — with film photography and the very idea of photography. Taking full advantage of showing what the camera sees (sometimes over long periods of exposure) compared to what the human eye cannot or does not see, she creates rich, quirky, complex images without the aid of digital manipulation. What you see was really there (over time).
Using surreal interpretations and cinematic gestures, one photographer's reflections on the shared experiences of womanhood: the joys, the struggles and the constant, never-ending surprises.
