Elizabeth Taylor in Iran

Elizabeth Taylor was as much an iconic figure in Iran as she was everywhere else in the world. During the Shah's time especially, she was revered as the prime example of beauty and elegance. She was also a bold figure unafraid of pushing boundaries and breaking stereotypes. To this end, she went on a spontaneous journey to Iran with a young photographer named Firooz Zahedi in 1976. Having recently graduated with a degree in art, Zahedi accompanied Taylor through several cities in Iran, including Persepolis, Shiraz, and Esfahan, photographing their adventure along the way. Over three dozen of the works are now being displayed in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.     

Zahedi himself presents the works in the following YouTube video:
