Iran Through the Lens of Abbas

In conjunction with the exhibition Between Word and Image: Modern Iranian Visual Culture

Abbas, an Iranian-born photojournalist and member of Magnum Photos who resides in Paris, will discuss his photographs of Iran. Throughout the 1970s, he took hundreds of photographs documenting the impact of the Shah’s modernization programs. His images of the 1979 Revolution serve as a compelling historical record of that event. Since 1997, Abbas has been returning to Iran regularly.

Co-sponsored by the Asia Society, the Kevorkian Center and Grey Art Gallery at New York University, and the Iranian-American Forum.
