The cultures of Sweden and Mexico are worlds apart and yet the fact Swedish fashion mag DV Mode recently paid homage to Mexican Artist Frida Kahlo shows just how globally significant her self-portraits were. Photographer Fredrik Wannerstedt uses extravagent floral head-dresses, silky long gowns and stylized shadows to try recreate the look of those personal, moving paintings. Let's hope the parrot wasn't too much of a diva.
