Manufactured Totems | Alaine Delorme

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 full transformation, both, a factory for the world and a new El Dorado of the market economy.
