In his giant outdoor studio where he controls space, time and light, Alain Laboile watches his six children. He captures moments of nothing, the unexpected as the expected, the blooming as the outbreak, imagination as banality. His tracking shots put everything on hold: the passage of time, the waltz of the clouds, the leaves in the wind. He shapes the humble material of everyday life like organic matter, enchanting it. It is certainly not paradise, nor the angels’ dream life. It is simply life; just life and nothing else.

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 the internet, my photographic production has become a mean of communication, leading to a questionning about freedom, nudity, being and having
