”I am my own muse. The subject I know best.” – Frida Kahlo

In college I studied The Mexican Muralist Movement with focus on Diego Rivera & Frida Kahlo. This morning, I came across a Frida quote that really resonated with me. I am not a photographer, and with my husband at work I had no one to take my photos (which is usually the case!) Feeling inspired and determined to create my vision I thought about Frida’s self portraits. If Frida could look through a mirror in order to paint herself then what should stop me? I decided I could take my own dam pictures and so these are the results.
