China’s Overloaded Cycle Carriers

French photographer Alain Delorme became fascinated by the piles of stacked products migrant Chinese workers loaded into their bicycles. The precariously overloaded packages often assume unusual forms. His documentation of the packed bicycles forms a series of photographs entitled Totems, which are both aesthetically glorious and astoundingly indicative of daily life in China.

The images were captured during two art residencies in Shanghai throughout 2009 and 2010.

  1. How do they load the things, stalls made of scaffolding perhaps? And how many feet do the wheel bearings last?
