Zandi photos are bought by LACMA.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has purchased a collection of photos from Iranian photographer Maryam Zandi's series "The 1979 Islamic Revolution."

"The collection mostly reflects the happiness of people when the Shah left Iran," Zandi said in a statement.

The photos also depict the reactions of people to the pictures of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi during demonstrations against his regime, she said.

"There are also photos portraying people on Enqelab Street near the University of Tehran, where major demonstrations took place," she added.

The photos bearing Zandi's name and signature have been developed by her for the museum.

She said that the museum has been working on an exhibition project over two years.
