Alain Delorme was born in 1979. He graduated from Gobelins in Paris with a degree in Photography. He also has a Master of Science and Technology in Photography from the University of Paris VIII. In this series, ‘Totems’, the composites are recreated on the basis of 6,000 images taken in Shanghai during two art residencies. The loads are exaggerated to emphasize the ‘totems’, which are highly symbolic of the ‘Made in China’ consumer culture. Delorme is represented by Galerie Magda Danysz in Paris.
