ANTOIN SEVRUGUIN: Past and Present
Edited by Tasha Vorderstrasse, Co-Authored by Charissa Johnson and Polina Kasian
Explore the changing world of late nineteenth-century Iran through the gaze of one of its most renowned photographers, Antoin Sevruguin. This volume, which will be accompanied by a forthcoming exhibition, publishes for the first time the Oriental Institute Museums complete collection of nineteenth-century Iranian photographs, most of which were created by Sevruguin. Sevruguins artfully staged photographs still resonate with us today.
Accompanying the print catalog is a series of essays that investigate Sevruguins life and photographic career, including the lasting impact of his unique vision, as demonstrated by the work of contemporary artist Yassaman Ameri.
