French conceptual photographer Alain Delorme's series of photographs entitled 'totems' reflect
images of the crazy everyday ingenuity…(plus balance, innate and strange gifts for architecture and engineering, gumption and bungee cords). Although exaggerated for effect, this is amazing to think about.
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."

Bea Szenfeld

Designer Bea Szenfeld is the woman behind these jaw dropping costumes created by layering paillettes and sharply-creased geometric forms out of paper. From Szenfeld’s ‘Sur la Plage’ (‘On the Beach’) collection, the pieces pull from 50s burlesque silhouettes and tribalism. The talented Polish designer says she draws inspiration from oceanic myths also. Szenfeld’s client list includes Hello Kitty, Swarovski Crystal, Tommy Hilfiger and Stella McCartney. She points out that her material of choice is stiff cardboard because it provides so many options for creating structure.
