Covering Tehran


Newsha Tavakolian, a 28-year old photojournalist for Polaris Images, took the spectacular photo above of Mir Hussein Moussavi and his supporters last Tuesday. Tavakolian, a Tehran native, has been covering the brewing maelstrom in her city while riding a motorbike. She talks via email to Lens, the New York Times photography blog, about her work and the challenges of documenting the demonstrations.
