Pictures of the day; Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo is one of the contemporary artists that I admire the most. Every time that I have the opportunity I'm reading or watching a documentary about her life. I always admired the way she portraited strength and vulnerability at the same time in her paintings. A woman that based her art on her personal experiences. Her physical and emotional pain never stop her to express her vision and purpose in life. Here, I recollected a series of pictures of her life that inspire me to do a photoshoot (soon on the blog). Her art, her style her character, her strength, her love for Diego Rivera, her feminism make her in my eyes an Iconic figure.

An Afternoon in Paris



Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to be living in this magical city.  When you stroll around in streets of Paris, you can automatically transport yourself to another era.  I took these pictures one day when had nothing to do. I walked and walked until the cold weather made me stop at Angelina's for hot chocolate with few macarons on the side. What can I say,  besides having beautiful haussemanian buildings Paris have the most exquisites pastry places.

Like a Picture; ETIENNE SANDORFI


Étienne (Istvan) Sandorfi was a Hungarian painter that became famous for his realistic paintings. He mastered the technique of the hyperrealism that consists of creating paintings with such details that are too close to reality, like photographs.  And Sandorfi was a genius in this genre. What I like about his work is that touch of surrealism in each of his paintings. His paintings are a perfect depiction of reality but at the same time they transport you to a parallel universe that is more darker.

El Mercado




 On my last trip to Bolivia, I had the great experience to go to the town of Uyuni to explore the largest salt flat of the world call "Salar de Uyuni". There I took a few pictures of "La Feria Semanal "  wich is a street market that happens every Thursday. In this market you can find everything that you need, starting from coca leaves, spices, arts and crafts, local gastronomy, DVD's, electronic equipment, etc. Is a place where you can experience the life and culture of a traditional Bolivian market because it is so full of diversity. Here is a series of pictures where I try to portrait exactly that.
