30.5 x 25 cm. 168 pp. Hardcover. lllustrated in b/w.On April 2, 2003, while on an assignment for the BBC in northern Iraq, the Iranian photographer Kaveh Golestan stepped on a land mine and was killed. A photojournalist since 1972, Golestan had witnessed the recent history of his country like no other and had been a tireless chronicler of its conflicts: he documented eight years of war with Iraq, and the repression of the Kurds in both Iran and Iraq. Of his aims, he once declared, ‘I want to show you images that will be like a slap in your face to shatter your security’ an approach that increased both public awareness and public discomfort, at home and abroad. – Recording the Truth in Iran collects Golestan’s powerful images for the first time.
