Atget’s Corner – 1091-1095, 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 1091 to 1095.
1091. A View of the 14th-Century Sky
1092. Ah, a Full Moon Night That You Can Eat
1093. The Art of Pickling in the Taaq, a Disappearing Element in Hypernative Architecture
1094. Our Tacky Showy Guest
1095. A Non-Studio Portrait of Working Mothers & Working Fathers
