Alain Laboile La Famille

“I’m a father of six. Through my photographic work I celebrate and document my family life : a life on the edge of the world, where atemporality and the 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, it is also accessible, addressing human nature and allowing the viewer to enter my world and reflect on their own childhoods. Fed everyday and shared with the world via internet, my photographic production has become a mean of communication, leading to a questioning about freedom, nudity, being and having.”
