Description

Frida Kahlo, renowned as one of the most important and influential artists of the 20th century, had a profound and deep connection with photography.

Throughout her life, Kahlo gathered an extensive collection of photographs: from intimate portraits her father, the photographer Guillermo Kahlo, took of her in many stages of her life to photographs of her family and friends she welcomed into her house. Images that document her health struggles as well as images that reveal her political views and her mexicanidad. Photographs taken by some of the people surrounding her and photographs she took herself. Pictures gifted to her by some of the most important photographers of her era alongside historical, artistic and nature images that would serve as inspiration for her paintings: Everything is there, carefully and meticulously kept by the hands of the artist.

First revealed to the public in 2007 when rediscovered after more than 50 years kept in sealed cabinets and dressers inside a closed bathroom in the Casa Azul, now the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City, more than 6,000 images that make up Frida Kahlo’s photographic archives are invaluable since they reveal the woman behind the myth and the central role that photography played in her personal and artistic life.
