Frida's Closet
















Can you imagine looking into Frida Kahlo's closet inside her childhood home?  Well, that's kind of what happened when I recently went to an exhibition called Appearances Can Be Deceiving: The Dresses of Frida Kahlo.  It's a temporary exhibition held at the Frida Kahlo Museum in the Coyoacan neighborhood in Mexico City.  It's a stunning display of her dresses, jewelry and even most intimate details such as her spine straightening corsets and crutches.  The exhibition also includes amazing couture dresses by Ricardo Tisci and Jean Paul Gaultier that were inspired by the artist.  It was an amazing day among these incredible pieces.  
A must see!

  3. Hello everybody
    I lived for a year in beautiful Stockholm, and afterwards went back to take photos of people and places. Stockholm is the most beautiful city I have ever lived in - and I have lived in many places! Now I published some of the photos on my blog:
