And in honor of this iconic artist‘s 100th birthday, Mexico City-based photographer Fernando Rodriguez shot this spectacular style editorial for Flesh Magazine. Bold colors and opulent textures combine to recreate the manner of her portraits that are famous.
This is the contemporary Frida, recorded in a pop-art style that vibrates with electric energy. She wears her hair in traditional braids with flowers, yet she also wears futuristic plastics and tinsel.
Rodriguez’s photos are both conceptual and conventional, fusing the past and current in stylish scenes of carefully curated moments.
