Alain Delormes’s “Totems”

I am usually not very enthusiastic about digital manipulation. Nothing wrong with that but I find it is often too much in-between, i.e. lost somewhere between traditional photography and pure CGI and more than often the artist’s intent seems to me not very clear.

But I enjoyed Alain Delormes’ serie “Totems”, which consists on edited shots from Shanghai streets, each pictures featuring a character who carries an extra-heavy burden. It is humoristic, intriguing in some way, and overall very well-done.
