Untold Stories

The socio-cultural life of images in Qajar Era Iran

Edited by: Pedram Khosronejad

In Iran, the history of photography and cinematography is mired with doubts and ambiguities. While academic debates have focused on the photography and cinematography of the Qajar era from the viewpoint of historical analyses and technical aspects, there does not appear to be any anthropological research, and particularly, visual anthropological research on these two important visual mediums. This book is the first of its kind to use visual anthropology, ethnographical film studies, as well as media/visual studies as a methodological framework for examining the socio-cultural life during the Qajar era in Persia (Iran).
