Akbar Nazemi's extraordinary colour photographs of the streets of Tehran during the period of the Iranian revolution. Nazemi was a young photographer studying in Dusseldorf when the Iranian Revolution began in June 1978. He returned to Tehran immediately and spent the next eight months recording the daily street scene during those extraordinary times. Nazemi’s photographs of that watershed moment document an event that continues to have a powerful global impact to this day.

Texts by Asef Bayat, Pantea Haghighi, Nikki R. Keddie, Akbar Nazemi, and Bill Jeffries.

The photographs were exhibited from March 5 to April 17, 2005 at Presentation House Gallery, then toured to the Art Gallery of Windsor and the Kenderdine Art Gallery in Saskatoon.
