The exhibition Elizabeth Taylor in Iran: Photographs by Firooz Zahedi, on view at LACMA through June 12, 2011, features images of Taylor made during a 1976 trip to Iran. It was a remarkable journey, as documented by Zahedi's photographs, shown together here for the first time. The pair traveled to the main tourist sites, including Ancient Persepolis, Shiraz and Isfahan. Though Zahedi photographed Taylor many times in the years following their trip to Iran, none are as personal, candid or creative as these images. For more information, visit lacma.org.
