The eyes of Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo – cult and consumer figure, martyr, survivor

The call precedes her! Myth or cliché? What’s behind it? Driven by this question, Berlin photographer Bert Loewenherz explored the “Frida phenomenon” in an elaborate art project. After several months of preparation and searching for a congenial Frida actress, Bert Loewenherz worked with a team of make-up artists, stylists and assistants to photographically depict the surreal, encrypted and symbolic layers of Kahlo’s painting.
