Atget’s Corner – 1086-1090, Delhi Photos
The visible city.
[By Mayank Austen Soofi]
Delhi is a voyeur’s paradise and The Delhi Walla also makes pictures.
I take photos of people, streets, flowers, eateries, drawing rooms, tombs, landscapes, buses, colleges, Sufi shrines, trees, animals, autos, libraries, birds, courtyards, kitchens and old buildings. My archive of more than 1,00,000 photos showcases Delhi’s ongoing evolution. Five randomly picked pictures from this collection are regularly put up on the pages of this website.
The series is named in the memory of French artist Eugène Atget (1857-1927), who, in the words of a biographer, was an “obsessed photographer determined to document every corner of Paris before it disappeared under the assault of modern improvements.”
Here are Delhi photos numbered 1086 to 1090.
1086. Like it or Not, Only a Truly Shithole Society Can Afford Such a Male Female Ratio in Public Places
1087. Where There’s a Will, There’s a Tree
1088. Sweet Dreams, Good Girl; Goodnight, Sweet Dog
1089. I Can’t Celebrate Myself, I Can’t Sing Myself… For I’m a Tidy Tramp Doomed to Doing the Same Boring Daily Journey Again and Again…
