ENGHELAB STREET / 2019 PHOTOBOOK AWARDS
Paris Photo and Aperture Foundation announced the winners of the 2019 edition of the PhotoBook Awards on 8 November 2019. Enghelab Street, A Revolution through Books: Iran 1979–1983 received the 2019 Photography Catalogue of the Year award for “A Revolution through Books: Iran 1979–1983”, published by Spector Books and LE BAL.
Irene Attinger from the MEP in Paris described the book as “an important addition to the narrative of the photobook with its focus on underground protest and propaganda books in Iran. It’s a critical work by a female artist and a scholar; it brings together specialized research and an artist perspective with a very strong design.”
