Iranian Army gunfire sends revolutionaries running through the Tehran streets on January 28, 1979. Photojournalist David Burnett, who documented the Iranian revolution from December 26, 1978 to February 7, 1979, said spontaneous events such as this would leave some protesters standing up to the shots and others running for cover.

"Some people deal with it," he said. "Others panic."
