Description
In 1976 and 1978, aerial photographer Georg Gerster had the rare opportunity to record the landscape of Iran in a series of 100 flights—a unique photographic project that resulted in a near-complete documentation of the major archaeological sites and important landscapes in the region. This dramatic, oversized album collects spectacular images—up to 12 1/2 x 20 inches—of ancient citadels, desert ruins, and rice fields spreading like a vast patchwork quilt. Here are densely packed cities, unchanged for centuries, and beautiful structures like the mausoleum of Omar Khayyam, as well as a camel caravan, casting long, distinctive shadows, and unexpected sights like the crowded ski resort in the Elburz Mountains, its parking lot packed with colorful 1970s autos.
