Spectacular color pictures for the first time of Qajar women by Antoine Sorogin

Antoin Sevruguin was a photographer of Armenian-Georgian descent in Persia during the reign of the Qajar dynasty (1785–1925). Born into a Russian family of Armenian-Georgian origin in the Russian embassy, Antoin Sevruguin was one of the many children of Vasily Sevryugin and a Georgian “Ms. Ashin”. Vasily Sevryugin (or Vassil de Sevruguin) was a Russian diplomat. Achin had raised her children in Tbilisi, Georgia, because she was denied her husband’s pension. After Vassil died in a horse riding accident, Anthony gave up the art form of painting and took up photography to support his family. His brothers Kolia and Emanuel helped him set up a studio in Tehran on Ala al-Dawla Street (today Ferdowsi St.).
