Photographer John Moore has been on a photographic journey through the heart of Iran.

This week marks 25 years since the death and the continued legacy of Ayatollah Khomeini, the father of the Islamic Revolution. 

Thousands of people gathered to hear speeches to mark the anniversary of his death on 4 June 2014. Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, is still revered by many Iranians, and his portrait hangs throughout the country.

John told the New York Times what it was like returning to Iran to capture these images. You can read his story on the Lens blog here.
