Atget’s Corner – 226-230, 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 25,000 photos showcases Delhi’s ongoing evolution. Each day five randomly picked pictures from this collection will be 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 226 to 230.
226. Karol Bagh
227. Kailash Colony
228. Ghaffar Manzil
Another great post… I was just wondering for the photos you click indoors… Have you ever posted a picture which isn’t actually of the area you’ve labelled if it be? When a person clicks so many photographs doesn’t he get confused once in a while?
Thanks. If I don’t remember the place where I took a particular photo, I label that photo’s location as ‘Place Unknown’.
