TEHRAN, Dec. 11 (Mehr News Agency) -- Cineastes, artists and fans flocked to the opening ceremony of the photo exhibition by superstar Hedyeh Tehrani here on Wednesday at the Iranian Artists Forum (IAF).
Abbas Kiarostami, Tahmineh Milani, Marzieh Borumand, Seifollah Samadian, Habib Rezaii and Amir-Hossein Seddiq were seen among the visitors who came to see the first exhibit of the actress.
The opening day for the exhibit was listed as Tuesday on the invitation card, but was postponed to the next day since some of the photos were not ready. Tehrani had informed her guests of the postponement, however many visitors still rushed to the forum on Tuesday and waited for hours before being informed of the delay.

A collection of 400 photos with the central theme of water, leaves, fish and lobsters are on display at the exhibit and her collection of video arts are also exhibited in the Entezami gallery of the forum.
"The photos on display are the outcome of four years of efforts, research and selection by the artist. She was very careful about the prints of her photos and has selected only her best work for the show," assistant Payam Irayi said on the opening day.
Each photo bears the signature of actress Tehrani and all are available for sale, he added.
The photos are on show in all the galleries of the forum combined with music and presentations until December 17 at the forum located on Musavi St., Taleqani Ave.
Tehrani is currently playing in the movie "Seven Minutes to Autumn" by director Alireza Amini, but has scarcely played in any movies over the past few years. Her role in Asghar Farhadi's "Fireworks Wednesday" brought her the Best Actress Award at the 24th edition of the Fajr Film Festival in 2006.
"Hemlock" by Behruz Afkhami and "Soltan" by Masud Kimiaii are also among her credits.
