'FRIDA' by Atelier Olschinsky is a respectful nod to the much celebrated Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Beyond the photography, Olschinsky deserves credit for finding a model that bears such a striking, uncanny resemblance to the famous artist. This likeness is enhanced by the clothing the model wears, which is decidedly similar to those depicted in a Frida Kahlo self-portrait. Indeed, stylistically, Olschinsky has drawn much inspiration from the Kahlo's paintings.

Many of the photographs play on one's sense of symmetry through setting the model or an aspect of her slightly askew of the center. In further homage, the model wears expressions of alertness and lucidity like those found in one of the artist's many celebrated self-portraits.
