"Peress' photographs do not purport to tell the story - any story - but are the nearly seismographic record of the photojournalist's perceptions, encounters, and not least, his emotions as he moves through the city and the countryside of a nation in upheaval. Involved one day, alienated the next; insightful in Tabriz, at sea in Qom; attracted to one subject, repelled by another, Telex Iran beats out the raw rhythms of Iran's dislocations, both historical and individual. First published in 1984, this exceptionally designed book established Gilles Peress' reputation as a photojournalist. The reissue of Telex Iran in 1997 shows that these photos only gain impact with Iran's continuing role as a key player in the Middle East." — Magnum Photos

Twelve years after Gilles Peress' portrait of Iran was first published it 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 photojournalistic monographs ever printed, is what he brought back.
