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."
