Photographer's Note

The Azadi Tower(The Freedom Tower) is a monument located on Azadi Square in Tehran. It is one of the landmarks of Tehran, marking the west entrance to the city.

The tower is about 45 metres tall and is completely clad in cut marble from Esfahan. It was commissioned by Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran, to mark the 2,500th year of the foundation of the Imperial State of Iran. As Hossein Amanat describes his creation, Azadi Tower 都tarts from the ground and stretches to the sky. This is how the architect saw the history and destination of Tehran. Remarkably, the monument represents a strong connection between past and future, history and ambitions, culture and progress. Azadi Tower became an indispensable feature of the city landscape and later appeared on the 200 rials bill.

The tower is an iconic view of Tehran, I have seen the photos of it many times before going to Iran. so, I am surprised that for years it hasn't been shown on TE.

I will upload two Workshops.
