Alain Delorme





Here is a fascinating conceptual photography project by French photographer Alain Delorme called 'Totems'. Although exaggerated for effect, this is amazing to think about, no? How many of you have seen people carrying extremely large loads? I have -- and it is quite humbling. It makes me think in a different perspective. See more photographs here.

From his website it states:

"The new Totems series by 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."
