Atget’s Corner – 1096-1100, 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 1096 to 1100.
1096. The Amazon Around the Corner
1097. Undoing All As All Had Never Been
1098. The Distinction of Uniform
1099. A Rickshaw Puller’s Fresh Morning Feet
1100. The Ex-News Reader Eavesdropping on Her Inner Bulletin
