C'est La Vie

Maryam Zandi Can you picture an artist -- that imaginative, sensitive soul -- in today's Iran? Maryam Zandi has done so with startling accuracy and taste in Portraits: A Portfolio of Iranian Artists II (Tehran, 1995).

Zandi (49) is a graduate of Tehran University's School of Law and Political Science. From 1971 to 1983, she worked as a staff photographer for the National Iranian Radio and Television, and its weekly Tamasha (renamed Soroush after 1979).

Here are all the women painters included in the collection. The photos were taken after the 1979 revolution.
