Tribute to Frida Kahlo

Frida was a woman of contrasts: with a strong personality but emotionally and physically weak. Insecure but at same time extroverted, her hurt body was hidden by her marvelous embroided mexican outfits and jewels and her uniques hairdos. I wanted to show her not like a “su-frida” (game of words with her name meaning suffering) woman, but like the brave, creative and unique person she was.
