Alain Laboile’s exhibition features an artist talk and an Akademie workshop that will entail the spontaneity, creativity and complicity in photography by using and optimizing the surrounding environment in visual storytelling. This self-taught photographer who only possesses one picture of his own childhood simply wished to record the passing of time with his family. Much of the inspiration behind Laboile’s collections stem from his desire to transform the transient moments of his children’s’ lives into everlasting memories that can be viewed years later.
Wrought-iron craftsman, photographer and father to six children, Alain Laboile started a family album in 2007, at the age of 39. His “La Famille” series was, at first, a private treasure. This self-taught photographer who only possesses one picture of his own childhood simply wished to record the passing of time with his family. A sculptor by training, Alain Laboile sees beyond his subjects: he gives depth to the images by highlighting a precious detail in the background revealing a treasure, a mystery, a child up in a tree.
