Transit Tehran: Young Iran and Its Inspirations

LSE Arts ‘Revolution Time’ public lecture

Kaveh Golestan was an inspiration to the current generation of Iranian photojournalists, filmmakers and reporters, including Azadeh Moaveni, author of Lipstick Jihad, and documentary filmmaker and journalist Maziar Bahari. Malu Halasa, who coedited Transit Tehran, an anthology of new writing and images from Tehran with Bahari, examines Golestan’s work and continuing appeal following his 2003 death. The lecture will be illustrated with images by Golestan and other photographers such as Newsha Tavakolian, who was named best photographer of 2006 by National Geographic, Abbas Kowsari, Javad Montazeri and Omid Salehi, who document the social transformation of their country.

Malu Halasa is an editor and writer. She is coeditor of Kaveh Golestan: Recording the Truth in Iran (Hatje Cantz/Prince Claus Fund Library 2007), Transit Tehran: Young Iran and Its Inspirations (Garnet Publishing/Prince Claus Fund Library, 2008) and The Secret Life of Syrian Lingerie (Chronicle Books/Prince Claus Fund Library 2008).
