Since last year for work reasons I've been moving to the south of France for the summer, specifically to Saint-Tropez. I spend most of my days exploring all the beautiful places that this town has to offer.
I had this idea of doing a photoshoot inspired by Frida Kahlo and for some reason I thought that the perfect place to do it was here. Between Saint-Tropez and the town of Ramatuelle, I found the most magical vineyards landscapes where you can fall instantly in love. I imagined Frida walking around barefoot thinking of Diego, smelling the lavender and letting the sun kiss her on the cheeks. A mystical and enchanting place for all the dreamers like me.

"Chère Sabine (Dear Sabine),
How can one resist the temptation, however slightly one knows you, of calling you by your first name and telling you what affectionate feelings you inspire? ... Your eye is often mischievous, but your gaze is unstintingly generous." - Jean-Pierre Bourgeois (Photographer)
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.
