Description

The OI Museum special exhibition, “Antoin Sevruguin: Past and Present,” featuring the late nineteenth-century photographs of Antoin Sevruguin, presents to the public for the first time the OI Museum’s collection of over 150 photographic prints attributed primarily to this acclaimed photographer of Qajar Iran. An additional focus of the exhibition is the lasting impact of Sevruguin’s unique vision, as demonstrated by the work of Iranian-Canadian artist Yassaman Ameri. The exhibition runs through December 2021.
