Isabella Ginanneschi grew up between Milan and Tuscany. In Milan she worked as an art director with the top designers and photographers during the city's fashion boom. Soon after moving to New York in 1985 she became the art director for Barneys New York. Bali has been her second home since 1992. Her first photography exhibition at the Ganesha Gallery at the Four Seasons Resort Bali led to her current representation by the Staley-Wise Gallery in New York. Her editorial work on Bali has been featured in Travel & Leisure, Departures, and House Beautiful magazines.
