Bahman Jalali (Tehran, 1944) is one of the most prominent figures in contemporary Iranian photography. His work is a testimony of the Iranian Revolution, the Iran-Iraq War and the post-war years. It also documents daily life, traditional architectural forms, and includes photomontage and historic negatives. His role in conserving, studying, and transmitting the photographic heritage of his country has made him a master and key actor in Iranian culture.
