With the Russian conquest of Central Asia, new techniques were introduced in the region- one of them was photography. Being a medium of modernity it was responsible for the establishment of a new visual culture, the overcoming of space and new feeling of time. Especially in an imperial context photography became important to connect the Asian periphery with the Moscow center. With an iconographic/iconological approach it is possible to analyze the genesis of the motifs that produced the knowledge of Central Asia since the first published travel logs, and their shift after the 1917 Revolution.
