Synopsis: This thoughtfully and meticulously researched book explores the work of indigenous Iranian photographers and the way in which their photographs reflect their society and surroundings. In order to highlight how photography reflects local culture, Carmen Pérez González, a photographer herself, offers a comparative visual analysis of nineteenth-century Iranian photographs and paintings created during the same time period and in the same place in order to show that aesthetic preferences are rooted in the socio-cultural habits of artists.  This lushly illustrated book is a testimony to the unique power and historical value of photographic portraits and their enduring power to capture local realities.

About the Author:

Carmen Pérez González studied astrophysics, photography and art history and works at the Museum of East Asian Art in Cologne, Germany. She is an award-winning Spanish academic (ICAS Book Prize 2011, Best PhD Thesis in Humanities, Asian Studies).
