Kahlo, The Two Fridas (Las dos Fridas)

I read about Frida Kahlo’s  (1907-1954) image in Contemporary Art and Memory. It shows a double self-portrait reflecting the artist at different times in her life and references different Mexican fashion cultures.

The concept of the double self-portrait struck me as an interesting possibility for my own practice. For example, in my upcoming assignment on constructed image, I could model two different perspectives on my own life.
