Frida Kahlo

Nickolas Muray, 1939
Nickolas Murray
What the Water Gave Me by Frida Kahlo
Self-portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird


"I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you."

Frida Kahlo

Funny......I was thinking of Frida yesterday....I once thought she was so strange. I looked at her paintings and thought, Good Lord! What's this all about!?" Then I saw the movie and fell in love. She's beautiful and awesome. Just to see her....

I love Frida, that something she had made her unique, who knew back then that she will become such an icon, I am glad you like her!
