Meeting Frida

We met in Budapest, on October 2018, 64 years after her death at her retrospective exhibition.

The brutal honesty of the art touched a raw nerve, an instant mirror reflecting my troubled state of mind. Frida’s self-portraits became mine, their guarded expression concealing layers of restrained emotions and unspoken words.

Meeting Frida” images emerged from the darkroom into the sun filled studio where burning shades of gold, amber, and red take over the black and white palette. Imperfections are accepted, even embraced. In life as in art.

Continuing my exploration of combining historical and contemporary photographic processes, in this portfolio, I create digital collages using iPhone and traditional camera images. Using digital negatives the final images are printed as Silver Gelatin Lith prints with Chromoskedastic Sabattier.
