Maryam Zandi was a staff photographer for National Iranian Radio and Television from 1971 to 1983, and a first-hand witness to the revolution on the streets of Tehran that overthrew the Pahlavi dynasty, a time of joy and hope that ushered in an Islamic republic. This book has remained unpublished until now, having finally received permission to print in the 11th post-revolution administration. It is an attempt by a female Iranian photographer to treat the events of this particular historic period with professional discretion and without political agenda. To a generation that only had access to officially sanctioned images, this captivating collection may offer a fresh outlook and context.
