Antoin Sevruguin's Photographs (Iran, fine Ottocento)

Exhibition of Antoin Sevruguin's Photographs

Antoin Sevruguin (ca 1840s-1933) was one of Iran's most creative and prolific early photographers. The exhibition was held on winter 2002 in Golestan Palace Museum and includes modern prints made from Sevruguin’s original glass-plate negatives, and is presented in thematic groupings that focus on the royal court, Iranian landscape and antiquities, everyday life, ethnographic photographs, women, and Western fantasy. This site will try to show the exhibition and tell about his life.
