The suspicious results from Friday's Iranian presidential election sent supporters of candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi into the streets. The mass confrontations in Tehran’s public spaces have been captured by photographers in exquisite and agonizing detail and sent around the world by Twitter.  The last few days in Iran have been frightening, inspiring and tragic. Collected here are photos chosen by Salon to try to encapsulate the joyous expectations that accompanied voting and the defiance and violence that followed the official proclamation of Ahmadinejad's reelection.
