Atget’s Corner – 1076-1080, 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 1076 to 1080.
1076. The Day-End Portrait of a Dude Charging His Heart
1077. To Each His Crown
1078. The Inward Life of a Hindi Poetess
1079. The Whole of a Life… a Rickshaw Puller’s Life… in a Small Mirror
1080. And They Thought They’d Forever Remain Great
