In his photographic series, Totems, Paris-based artist Alain Delorme captures the heart and souls of China that drive the every day life in Shanghai. The works present portraits of migrant workers perched on their bikes or on foot with their unbelieveable piles of product they transport across the cityday-to-day. Delorme shows a part of reality in its true form. Although it may seem a bit humorous or unreal to the viewer or bystander, the subjects of these photos see and live this as their way of everyday, normal life. The overabundance of these items are not humorous, rather, they stack up to become a bright, poetic and artistic sculpture.
