A few weeks back i got to help and work with the photographer Marie of SOAFRICANE.COM as a creative director . It was a portrait project and i kept my creative directing skills in good use to pull off this Frida Kahlo inspired shoot.
For those of you who do not know Frida Kahlo heres a short description on her according to google and also according to my understanding of her through books , Frida Kahlo is one of Mexico’s most famous artists and also a popular feminist icon, celebrated for her passionate indomitability in the face of life’s trials. She is also best known through her amazing self portraits, powerful paintings and UNI-BROWS.Frida Kahlo is one of Mexico's most famous artists and also a popular feminist icon, celebrated for her passionate indomitability in the face of life's trials.

Below are some of my favourite Frida Kahlo Quotes;
I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration. Click To Tweet
I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best Click To Tweet
Nothing is absolute. Everything changes, everything moves, everything revolves, everything flies and goes away. Click To Tweet
I want to live life even as half as how Frida Kahlo lived, so fearless and used her talents oh very well and shared it with the world despite of everything she had going on with her personal life.
I hope you liked this series,
