Totems // Alain Delorme

October 11, 2010

The new Totems series by French photgrapher Alain Delorme plunges us into the core of contemporary China and its complexity.  Under the blue sky of a highly colored Shanghai, men carry throughout the city unbelievable piles. These precarious columns made of cardboard or chairs appear as new totems of a society in complete transformation, both a factory for the world and a new El Dorado of the market economy.

I’ve never visited the Far East so I don’t exactly know how true to reality these photos are, I just know that they look insane. Awesome work.
