Telex Iran
by Gilles Peress
This week in Iran in 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini returned from exile, and days later, the military disbanded. This book contains powerful images from Gilles Peress’ coverage of Iran in 1979-80, while the revolution was at its height.

Life as it unfolds in front of the camera is full of so much complexity, wonder and surprise that I find it unnecessary to create new realities. There is more pleasure, for me, in things as-they-are.
