Wandering in Trivandrum

“The concept of the flâneur, the casual wanderer, observer and reporter of street-life in the modern city, was first explored, at length, in the writings of Baudelaire. Baudelaire’s flâneur, an aesthete and dandy, wandered the streets and arcades of nineteenth-century Paris looking at and listening to the kaleidoscopic manifestations of the life of a modern city. ”

‘Wandering in Trivandrum’ is inspired from Baudelaire’s flâneur. It is an attempt to capture the essence an local flavours of the East Fort area in Thiruvananthapuram with random shots.
