Alain Delorme Photography

The “photography” of Alain Delorme is nothing short of fantastic. Employing elements like rickshaws, tricycles, and little Asian men allow him to create a perfect canvas on which to precariously perch some of the hugest collection of items (we’re thinking Hoarders) we have ever seen. Delorme was in Shanghai for art residencies for 2009 and 2010 and even though there have been pictures of piles of shit this high, we can’t help but wonder how much of the ‘shop got put into the work. But that’s not the point. Shop or not, the giant loads reflecting the crowded nature of the East juxtaposed against the individuality of the driver are a welcome departure from the stereotypical representations found in modern media. Described in non-pretentious art dbag terms, we like them because they’re cool.
