We’ve seen his iconic images of the revolution and maybe we saw some of his non-Iranian photographs that vibrated a worldwide audience. But most of us never knew his name. He went by Abbas. Just Abbas. Last week, possibly our most prolific photographers passed away at the age of 74 in Paris, France.
He had been working on documenting 4 religions, their beauty, faith, as well as their often violent side. He was working on his exploration of Judaism, when he passed away.
Let us take a moment and remember him through his amazing photographs.
