The Family

Photos and text: © Alain Laboile

  • I'm a father of six.

    Through my photography work I celebrate and document my family life : A life on the edge of the world, where intemporality and universality of childhood meet.

    Day to day I create a family album that constitues a legacy that I will pass on to my children. My work reflects our way of life, revolving around their childhood.

    My photographs will be the testimony of that. In a way my approach can be considered similar to the one of an ethnologist.

    Though my work is deeply personal, Its also accessible, addressing human nature and allowing the viewer to enter my world and reflect on his own childhood.

    Fed everyday and shared with the world via the internet, my photographic production has became a means of communication, leading to a questioning about freedom, nudity, being and having.
