Visual Sources

​​Visual sources in people's history refer to photos and footage that capture everyday life directly through the camera lens. Other sources such as daily household objects, clothing, working tools, local artefacts, architectural sites, paintings and sketches offer an alternative visual medium for the study of everyday life. Mardomnameh intends to gradually and continuously compile a reference list of visual sources and documents with relevance to people's history of Iran.
