Launch of Circle of Confusion by Nick Sethi.
On the occasion of the finissage of “La Rentrée”, Entrance & The Community are pleased to present the international launch of Nick Sethi’s new book.
Circle of Confusion by Nick Sethi (self-published), 2022.
“Circle of Confusion was photographed chronologically in two short bursts in and around Sadar Bazaar, New Delhi’s largest and most hectic wholesale market. In an impressive display of organized chaos, porters transport goods through the labyrinth of alleyways, intersections, and roundabouts with handmade carts that they adorn to distinguish ownership. In photography, the CIRCLE OF CONFUSION refers to an optical spot used to determine the depth of field, the part of an image that is acceptably sharp. When photographing in Sadar Bazaar, it’s impossible to stop, observe, and compose a photo without disrupting the traffic. So as I feel situations unfolding, I just point and click, allowing technology, chance, and intuition to choose the crop and focus, and in turn expose the final image.”
