Here is what Albair had to say about his work:

Life’s ambiguities—love, loss, and longing—are subjects for my artworks. Found objects  combined together in a tight space link, and create a dialogue. The silent conversation  becomes a reflection of my experiences as an artist, teacher, traveler, and twin. This  process is based on traditional tableau photography in which models on a stage remain  motionless for an observer. The camera simply records the scene. 

In my works, found objects appear like actors on a stage, frozen in time. Just as there  are many ways of looking at the past and the present, tableaus narrate many  possibilities. Story threads diverge while the viewer searches for meaning. The resulting  photograph has a painterly quality which reveals and conceals layers of information.  While specific interpretations are left to the viewer, according to their own experiences,  my staged objects create an expectation that something meaningful just happened—or  is about to.
