Alain Laboile is a French photographer living in Bordeaux. He had made plaster portraits, as a sculptor, before making the shaggy insects of iron. In 2004 he accidently got into photography. At first he photographed insects, then his interest turned to his six children, and cats. His works are not just snap shots but quite exciting and special photographs, because his photo-eye is very warm and unique.
