Seifollah Samadian

Born, 1954 in Orumieh, Iran

From the archived Documenta 11 website : www.documenta12.de//archiv/d11/data/english/index.html

“Seifollah Samadian is an internationally known photojournalist, and one of the most active documentary photographers and film cameramen in post- Revolutionary Iran. As the Editor of Tasswir (”Image”) magazine, Samadian has covered most of the social and political events since the 1979 Revolution. The Revolution confronted modernism head on, and many artists and film-makers had difficulties adjusting; documentary photographers and filmmakers were better placed to witness the changed political and social climate.”
