BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, IN A BOX. By the end of 1979, Iran was in upheaval: the revolution had ended, Khomeini was declared Supreme Leader, and the Islamic Republic of Iran was born. In November, students seized the American Embassy and with it, 52 American diplomats and citizens, and held them hostage for 444 days. On a whim and with the hope that he could better understand what was happening in Iran, photojournalist Gilles Peress flew to Teheran in December 1979 and for five weeks prowled the streets and countryside, recording his perceptions, encounters, and emotions. The images are juxtaposed with his telegrams to Magnum, his photo agency "and give an urgency not only to the photographs but to the life of one restless photojournalist living in a foreign land from day to day." The photographer's first book. Photographs by Gilles Peress; essay by Gholam-Hossein Sa'edi; uncredited introduction; background to events chronology. SIGNED BY PERESS on colophon page opposite the title page; no inscription. 104 pages; approx. 100 b&w illustrations; 10.75 x 15 inches.
