Alain Delorme: Totems

19Sep10

IN 2009 and 2010, French photographer Alain Delorme spent time in China for two artist residencies. Enraptured by the visual (and physical!) aspect of local workers transporting gravity defying heaps of product on 2 or 3 wheel bicycles, Delorme set out to document the beauty of what he was seeing. An amazing combination of huge vertical stacks, physical exertion and colourful backgrounds, these photos will pull you in.

Want to see them in person? Hurry! totems will be on display through 25 September 2010 at the Magda Danysz Gallery in Paris.  On a side note, this is an amazing gallery! They’ve shown works by Shepard Fairey – so you know you can expect to find some gems when you visit.

A few of my favorites:
