For Frida.

I have seen her face everywhere. In those gorgeous books at my favorite urban apparel store. On all the feminists blogs that preach about the empowering woman. Through the hipster feeds on social media sites. I finally took my own time to look into the world of Frida Kahlo.  Her life was pain. Her life was excitement. It was so full of passion. I even found myself to be repulsed by some of the things she did but there was no denying her freedom.  I was inspired by the fact that she taught herself to paint and became an amazing artist.  When I think of the power of one's own will to create and leave their designated mark on this world, I am overwhelmed. 

"I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling." -Frida Kahlo

Take a look at a fun, Frida-inspired shoot I did with the beautiful Meagan Callier...
