Tate Modern museum of London is displaying photos documenting the 1979 Islamic Revolution and the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war.

Curated by Iranian art historian Morad Montazami and photographer Sarah Allen, the photos are drawn from the collection of Martin Parr, 65, a British documentary photographer, photojournalist and collector.

According to the museum website, the revolution and war were among the most documented political turmoils of the 20th century, recorded by journalists, filmmakers, graphic artists, painters and broadcasters.

The photos will remain on show for a year at Tate Modern Museum in London.
