In 1976, Elizabeth Taylor went to Iran for the first and only time. Her trip was captured by Firooz Zahediwho was about to graduate art school and would become one of Hollywood’s top photographers. Originally from Iran, Zahedi left as a child and returned for the first time with Taylor. Together with a group of others, they traveled to the tourist sites of Persepolis, Shiraz and Isfahan.
Firooz Zahedi would go on to capture the images of an elite list of Hollywood stars including Angelina Jolie, Leonardo Dicaprio, Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman and countless others.
