Emigrated to the U.S. in 1977, Abadan-born Keyvon Behpour, 36, is a well-established professional photographer, making his home in Bridgeport, Connecticut. His recent clients include IBM, AT&T and Virgin Atlantic Records.
But what went on display at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, last April showed a personal side; a very sensitive, poetic, even mystical side. Many of his black and white images of Iran, taken during a recent trip, seem to glow with poise and dignity.
Behpour's fine art photography has been featured in magazines in Iran and is on display in the permanent art collection titled El Espiritu de la Tierra, at the U.S. Embassy chancellery building in La Paz, Bolivia.
Here are some examples of his work displayed at the National Press Club:
