In his series of carefully composed black-and-white images that make up “La Famille”, the French photographer Alain Laboile has captured a sense of youthful freedom through the exploits of his six children.
Mr. Laboile publishes his photos in serial form, sharing them with the world from the user name “lab oil” on Flickr. They are simple, beautiful moments.
A sculptor by trade, Mr. Laboile bought a small digital camera to photograph his work in 2004. He became interested in macro photography and later began documenting the children: Four girls — Olyana, now 16; Luna, 14; Dune, 5; and Nil, 4 — and two boys — Merlin, 12, and Eliott, 18, a student who now lives in Bordeaux.
Lori Nix constructs these small dioramas using cardboard, foam, glue and paint which she then photographs using an 8 x 10 inch camera. Each piece takes about 7 months to complete.

Thomas Barbèy’s surrealist photos are a combination of sandwiching negatives, planning double-exposures, or re-photographing collaged photos.
Most of his photos were shot with either a Mamiya RB67 or a Canon AE-1.
