We are pleased to share with you Abbas: 100 Photos for Press Freedom, a project which we have been working on with Reporters sans frontières / Reporters Without Borders / RSF for the past months. This title is part of a collection of RSF albums which pays tribute to the greatest photographers of the 20th century.
The portfolio of a hundred pages, divided into four chapters illustrating each facet of Abbas’s career (Chaos, Iran, Gods, Vision), opens with a foreword by Pierre Haski journalist and President of Reporters Without Borders. It is illustrated by other previously unpublished texts:
– the “suspended moment” written by ABBAS himself;
– a memorable meet-up with the colonel of the apartheid regime which Abbas immortalized in his iconic image, recounted by Abbas’ son Hamish Crooks;
– a fraternal homage by Magnum photographer Ian Berry;
– a testimonial to Iran by Nobel Peace Prize winner Shirin Ebadi;
– and a tribute from Abbas’ wife Melisa Teo in which she shares the biggest insights Abbas give her.
100% of sale proceeds will go toward supporting press freedom. Please visit to order your copy.
