War can create scenes of unimaginable pain and suffering, and yet it can also paradoxically showcase the noblest qualities of the human spirit. A new photography exhibition from a Boston-area photographer hopes to capture a bit of both with a new exhibit appearing at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center.

Randy Goodman is presenting a collection of approximately 30 prints in color as well as in black and white detailing the photographer''s firsthand experiences as a teacher living in a conflicted region during the Iranian Hostage Crisis and the Iran-Iraq war.

"I was asked by the journalist William Worthy if I wanted to go along as a photographer with a grassroots delegation of Americans who were traveling to meet with the people holding the hostages," the photojournalist tells the Cambridge Tab. "When you''re 24 and full of adventure, you see something like this as an opportunity to do what you always wanted to do."

Goodman participated in the 10-day tour of the newly seized American embassy in Tehran, returned the following year as a part of a CBS news crew only to return yet again as contracted photographer with Time magazine.

The exhibition, titled Iran: Images from Beneath a Chador – The Hostage Crisis to the Iran-Iraq War (1980-83) will run through March.
