COMPANY: Iran Issa-Khan Gallery
WHAT MAKES HER HAUTE: She began her career as a high-flying fashion photographer, consorting with the world’s most rich and famous and photographing the “one-name” supermodels for some of the biggest fashion rags. It has been said that the Issa-Khan lens set the visual tone for the 1980s. Today, the Persian photographer’s gallery in the Design District portrays some of her best works, including shots of Nancy Regan at the White House, Paulina Porizkova, Farrah Fawcett, and Paloma Picasso. In the late 90s, she made a transition from photographing the pretty people to shooting nature’s beauty. Today, travelers coming in and out of Miami International Airport are welcomed by an exhibition of 25 of her large-scale photographs in an exhibition titled “Gifts from the Sea,” displayed in the Skywalk between Terminals E and F.
