Abbas – Photographer of war, crisis and revolution

Published on April 17, 2021 by

The photographer Abbas Attar, known simply as Abbas, was one of the foremost documenters of crisis and revolution. Many of his images have become iconic.

The Iranian-French photojournalist Abbas was a member of the Magnum photographic agency. Beginning in the 1960s, he was often on the scene for events that shook the world. He spent two years documenting the Iranian revolution, and his travels also took him to Northern Ireland, the Middle East, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Chile, Cuba, Mexico and South Africa, among other places. His work mainly focuses on political and religious conflicts.
For the first time, this film looks at the man who saw himself as a “historian of the present,” and captures the last words of one of the most important photographers of our time. Abbas died in Paris in 2018.
