“Telex Iran is an extraordinarily personal document of a public event. The photographs Gilles Peress took over a five-week period during 1979-1980 focus on the seizure of the American embassy and a number of hostages in Tehran by student proxy groups of the new Iranian regime. … 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.”
