Chinese couriers carry incredible loads on their bikes

Chinese couriers carry incredible loads on their bikes

Couriers in China need strong legs as well as acrobatic skills to balance massive loads on their tricycles and bicycles.

More sights to see in China.

  1. The Chinese totems... The photos are exaggerated intentionally by the photographer for an art exhibit. Interesting info:

    And from another site:
    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.
