TRAVELLING EXHIBITION

Frida Kahlo Her Photos

This profoundly moving and intimate exhibition reveals a series of images belonging to Frida’s personal collection, which were locked up in a bathroom at the artist’s residence, La Casa Azul (now Museo Frida Kahlo), for more than 50 years.

It was only in 2003 that the numbed archive was opened and that all hidden documents and objects were known and studied. By 2009 Pablo Ortiz Monasterio, Mexican photographer and photo historian, as the curator of this exhibition, selected 241 of the newly found photographs to compose it.

Frida Kahlo, Her Photos exhibition, gives us the opportunity to get to know the woman behind the artist: her origins and roots, her friendships and romantic relationships, her constant fight with her fragile health, her political tendencies and also, the strong role that photography played in her life and work.

The venues already visited by the Frida Kahlo – Her Photos exhibition, and those where it will be displayed at a later date can be viewed below.
