One of my most memorable moments in photography was meeting Gilles Peress. This meeting came late in my career, but as you will see and hear, my initiation to Gilles and his work goes back to the very beginnings of my life as a photographer.
That fateful day during my time at university. The bookstore. Finding Telex Iran and being baffled by the style, the composition, and the collection of intimate imagery combined with the cutting simplicity of the telex. And seeing Iran in a way that most Americans had not.
Telex Iran is a hard book come by, and for this I am sorry. But take your time and get in front of these pages however you can. The library would my first suggestion. In addition, study Gilles Peress and what he has been able to accomplish. This book of his is one of many and all of them are worth your time and energy.
