Atget’s Corner – 1126-1130, 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 1126 to 1130.
1126. When Life’s a Lemon
1127. The Yards of Sari… Draping a Working Woman’s Daily Life
1128. The Measure of His Morning
1129. In Her Last Birth, She Lived in a Village Without Traffic Without Roads… She Smoked Beedis and Had Midnight Swims
1130. It’s Raining Heavily and She is Leaving Her Home for Ever… To Make No Beginning Elsewhere… She No Longer Believes in New Beginnings
