about this item
Alain Laboile resides with his family in a village in the southwest of France. A sculptor by trade, he acquired his first camera only a few years ago. But soon his six children and their natural and uninhibited lifestyle came to dominate his camera's attention: "Through my photographic work I celebrate and document my family life: a life on the edge of the world, where intemporality and the universality of childhood meet. 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."
