Tahami Collection of Iranian Photographs [c1880-1941]

This fonds consists of digital images of a sample of the photographic collection held at the Tahami Photography Shop in Tehran, Iran. The images were created as part of the project EAP001 Faces and Places in Iran: Iranian Photography at the Turn of the 20th Century. The full collection consists of approximately 10,000 glass plate negatives and prints, dating from the Qajar to the end of the Pahlavi I periods [c1880-1941]. The collection primarily consists of group and individual portrait photographs, and also images of landscapes, buildings and animals. Unfortunately, information about the provenance, context and subjects of the majority of the collection is unknown; information in this catalogue is therefore necessarily incomplete.
