Antoine Sorogin: Pioneering Photographer of the Qajar Era
Unraveling the Mystery: Clues and Speculations
The evocative mood and ambiance captured in the Qajar photos suggest that the woman likely belonged to the middle class or even the nobility. However, the absence of contextual information or accompanying descriptions makes it challenging to pinpoint her exact background or identity. Most archives simply refer to her as “one woman” or “several women,” offering limited clues about her life. Notably, a collection of high-quality photos of her has been labeled as part of a collection related to “Naser al-Din Shah’s harem,” hinting at a possible association with the royal court.
