About The Book

Starting with a commission from Holiday Magazine, Morath travelled in Iran with Robert Delpire during 1956.

Morath entered deeply into the culture of the places she visited and the lives of the people she photographed in order to document, as she noted, “the continuity - or lack of it - between past and present.”

She photographed Iran with the fine vision of an anthropologist, examining religious rituals, costuming, work, sport, music, art, and theatre.

Morath’s work in Iran presaged her later work in Spain, China, and Russia, creating an extensive document of the clash between modernity and tradition in the post-war world. 

Retrospectively, Inge Morath: Iran recalls a land and a culture that has been profoundly transformed since the Iranian Revolution of 1979. It is a window into the past which provides a unique perspective on Iran in the present.

This book with accompanying texts seek to place this largely unknown body of photographs within the larger field of photojournalism.
