Inge Morath: Iran
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
In 1956, wearing a chador and travelling alone, the Austrian-born photographer Inge Morath (1923-2002) visited Iran for a US magazine. With the keen vision of an anthropologist, she documented the clash between tradition and modernity, from the Shah's palace to a nomad's tent, from oil installations to Zoroastrian shrines. More than 200 of her richly evocative black-and-white photographs are reproduced in this handsome book, which includes an account of her journey, with letters, notes and travel documents.
