Historical Photos of Qajar Era

An exhibition of historical photos from religious places opened Wednesday at City Photo Museum in Tehran.
A collection of photographs taken from religious places by photographers of the Qajar era (1785-1925) are on display at the museum located at Bahar-Shiraz Park near 7-Tir Square.
The exhibit will run through June 25, featuring a selection of photos from archives. It will be open on all days except Fridays. From Saturday till Wednesday, it is open from 9 am-3:45 pm and visiting hours on Thursdays are from 9 am-12:15 pm.
On display are 17 photographs, 20 by 30 cm in size. It is the first time such a collection is on public display.
Photography became popular in Iran during the late Qajar period and was embraced enthusiastically by Qajar king Nasser al-Din Shah who ruled from 1848 to 1896.
Under his rule, many new photography technology were imported into Iran. During the period, painting and photography interacted closely in terms of style and composition. The art-enthusiastic king himself embraced photography dearly.
