China’s unusual views by Alain Delorme

“Totems” is a photo project by French photographer Alain Delorme.

His project has been highly promoted on many of the major Chinese websites and media. Some Chinese media don’t report the name of the photographer, but his visual message and unusual views are clear to all.

His photos show migrant workers in Shanghai: recyclers, street vendors on the background of massive development etc. Some of the photos are digitally retouched, as is clearly visible, but the starting point of Delorme is a true depiction of China: some workers live every day the slogan “Impossible is Nothing!”
