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.
