Atget’s Corner – 1116-1120, 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 1116 to 1120.
1116. The Tuk Tuk Man’s Shirt
1117. The Most Appropriate Interiors of the Tomb of Emperor Muhammed Shah Rangeela, the Colorful
1118. Two Friends Watching… Friends?
1119. Free Beings Dwell Out of Clear Sights… Like a Murmured Gossip
1120. “But even he knew that things would turn out all right in the end. They would, because they had to. Because Miss Jebeen, Miss Udaya Jebeen, was come.”
