This thesis aims to examine the photographic representation of the Eastern women, in nineteenth century. The theoretical framework of this study is based upon the formation of the representation of the “Eastern women” in the context of Orientalist discourse. The emergence of Orientalist studio photography is analyzed with the thematic classifications of the Eastern women in photography. In addition, how the Western subject constitutes himself through the agency of desire in terms of the images of the Eastern women is discussed.
