Father Of Six Takes Magical Pictures Of His Kids As They Grow
Photographer and father of six Alain Laboile’s beautiful photos of his family and kids cannot help but conjure up fond memories of your own childhood. His eye for beautiful and vital compositions, along with his choice to shoot in black and white, give his photographs a timeless feel and make them seem as though they could have been a part of anyone’s childhood – as if they’re childhood or family universals.
Laboile describes his family’s life as “atypical,” and he might be right in a way. And more and more Western families these days find themselves living in urban settings, unlike the rural area his children explore in his photos. But the wonder in his images is beautiful and palpable.
“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… ”
“My work reflects our way of life, revolving around their childhood. My photographs will be the testimony of that.”
“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.”
