We say goodbye to Photographer and Photojournalist Abbas, who has left us with a stunning 60-year photographic career, including a 27 year stint at the Magnum photo agency. Abbas's career has seen him cover the Vietnam war and the Iranian Revolution where he told those who wanted to stop him from shooting that: “This is for history.” You can find out more about Abbas at Magum photos and here’s a few images from Abbas’s portfolio.
