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
By dangling sheets of colored gels in front of the camera, these "straight" street photos look multi-layered and super-saturated — a fresh way to see ordinary surroundings.
Finalist, LensCulture Earth Awards:
A jumble of flowers seems to float in a sea of liquid color, their images echoed on reflective surfaces —vibrant, blooming metaphors for the overflowing human spirit.
