Gilles Peress' portrait of Iran, Telex Iran remains a vital and revealing portrait of this belaguered, complicated nation. The political collision of America and Iran, which resulted in the 1981 hostage crisis, brought Peress to Iran. Telex Iran, one of the finest photojournalism monographs ever printed, is what he brought back.
