Photojournalist David Burnett talked about his experiences as a Western photographer capturing the images of the Iranian Revolution. The events are chronicled in his book 44 Days: Iran and the Remaking of the World (National Geographic; September 29, 2009). He gave a slide show presentation of many of those works from the 44 days he spent in Iran during the winter of 1978-1979, culminating in the Islamic Revolution. He photographed the last days of the shah, his departure from the country, the ensuing protests, and its aftermath when the Ayatollah Khomeini arrived and established the Islamic Republic. He responded to questions from members of the audience.
