Alain Laboile
Photographer

Born on May 1, 1968 in Bordeaux, France, Alain Laboile is a photographer and father of six.

In 2004, as he needed to put together a portfolio of his work as a sculptor, he acquired a camera, and thus developed a taste for macrophotography, spurred by his passion for entomology.

Later on, he pointed his lens towards his growing family which became his major subject, be it in a realistic depiction of their atypical lifestyle in La Famille, or in bizarre stagings around a pond in Réflexion autour du Bassin.

Alain Laboile’s work has since been exhibited around the world and he just published a book with Kehrer Verlag, At the Edge of the World.

Gallery representation includes Jiro Miura Gallery, Tokyo, Galerie Intervalle, Paris, Torch Gallery, Amsterdam, and Leica Gallery Sao Paulo.

Laboile was among the Top 100 LensCulture Street Photography Awards 2016.

  • Adrianna Ault: Levee
    Publication
    Void
    International
    Adrianna Ault was raised in New Orleans where a 350 mile levee system controls and holds back flood waters. This project began as Ault attempted to better understand the landscape surrounding the city, but evolved over the course of 5-years to encompass her changing family, journeys they took and the processing of grief. The levee became a metaphor for the barriers built in an attempt to ward off inevitable decline, and the onslaught of time and nature. (more…)
