Sunday, April 19, 2009, 3 PM Senior Sunday – Randy Hope Goodman: From Beneath a Chador: A Photojournalist Covers Iran’s Islamic Revolution A talk and exhibition
Randy Hope Goodman began her photojournalism career in Iran (1980), during the months following the US Embassy takeover and the holding of fifty American hostages. Covering a grassroots delegation of Americans invited to meet with the Iranian students holding the US hostages, she photographed the delegates’ interviews with top ranking political and religious, their conversations with the students inside the US Embassy, their attendance at the Friday Prayer service held at the University of Tehran, and their visit to Evin Prison for interviews with former members of the Shah’s secret police, amongst others.
Randy Hope Goodman discusses her photographs taken in the early years of the Islamic Revolution (1980 – 1983), during the hostage taking and the Iran-Iraq war. Digital Silver Imaging worked with Randy to scan and print the images that will be on display.

For all Senior Sundays admission is FREE for seniors and their friends.
