Alain Laboile

Alain Laboile was born in Bordeaux (France) in 1969. In 1990 he meets his wife, Anne, an Art student and his passion for art snowballs. After cumulating jobs here and there, Alain becomes a sculptor, fascinated by insects he sculpts in plaster, in stone, in rusty iron. They live in Bordeaux, on top of the hill. Their children are born. The house now bursting at the seams, they leave the hill for the « stream on the edge of the world ». Alain starts taking pictures of his sculptures, then his children, every day… a diary of everyday life. Alain has won numerous awards and has exhibited his work across France. His first monograph, En attendant le facteur, (Waiting for the postman) is out now.

Il débute par la pratique de la macrophotographie mais c’est sa vie intime avec des photographies de ses enfants qui va le révéler. En effet, sa famille, nombreuse, est son thème privilégié.
