It is registered in the United Kingdom as a limited company and owned by Hengameh Golestan, the photographer’s widow.
Vali Mahlouji acts as agent and curator to the estate since its formation and is responsible for the preservation, conservation, curatorial research, promotion and management of the estate.
The estate is supported through donations and fundraising. Limited funds are raised by the estate through the sale of a very limited number of stamped editions.
Conservation and digitisation of the historical archive is the estate’s central mission. The archive constitutes one of the most significant visual documents of the social, cultural and political history of Iran during the second half of the twentieth century, most of which has remained unseen to date.
