Looking at French photographer Alain Delorme’s Totems is almost surreal. Its amazing that one person can carry such a huge load by themselves and only a bike. From his website, "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."
