The Iranian: Photo of the Day

Jan 1, 2001

Hossein Aimani demonstrates how he repacks golden ossetra caviar from Iran, at his company's headquarters in the Queens borough of New York, Thursday Dec. 7, 2000. In a cold, gray building, lost among dozens of warehouses and auto-parts dealers, Aimani possesses an immense treasure - billions of tiny, glistening eggs smelling of sea and salt in blue-and-gold tins bearing the name "Paramount Caviar."
