Atget’s Corner – 1136-1140, 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 1136 to 1140.
1136. Because the Mind of a Loner is Always the Most Crowded
1137. Do You Remember… the Body Language of Listening, Sans the Mobile
1138. Save the Planet…. Deep Fry It, Gobble It, and be Guilty
1139. To Morning Shift News Media Jobs That Pay the Bills
1140. Mourning under Morning
