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.

Repurposing images depicting American life from 1964-74, this conceptual series challenges the viewer to link together the nation's cultural history and the photographs' intriguing yet disjointed visual narrative.
