This book contains what Iranian photojournalist Kaveh Kazemi considers to be some of his best work. The striking images were taken during the events of the Iranian Revolution and its aftermath, the Iran-Iraq War. The events documented in these photographs shook the world at the time, and very much continue to shape the lives of Iranians today. Kazemi’s sharp eye and unflagging courage captured familiar scenes from the events of those years: massive marches in the streets against authoritarianism, fighters on their way to the front, chador-clad women instructing the use of firearms and gas masks, and signboards covered with the names and pictures of martyrs.
