The subject of captured and collared woman is one that fascinates throughout history. In the old days of photography models posed as slave- or haremgirl, many movies were made around the subject as well.

I tried to built a collection with photos from various photographers (for some I will built a special page later) and some photos from unknown photographers. Typical for these photos is the fact that the models wear iron chains and juwelery to confirm their role as slavegirl.

A very special touch are the photos from photographer Rudolf Franz Lehnert, he photographed oriental woman who appear to have been true haremgirls.
There is a special download available with 17 albums and 106 images, most of them are series.
