Frida Kahlo, Her Photos comes from the archive of photographs that belonged to her personally and which were largely unknown. They are now grouped together thematically into six sections by a renowned Mexican photographer, curator and historian of photography in Mexico, Pablo Ortiz Monasterio. The exhibition does not describe a chronological biography of Kahlo, but rather reveals parts of the personal history of an artist, of a country and of a period. It is a photographic collage made up of images that allow us to discover new facets of a key figure in the 20th century.
The significance of these historical images is evident, but some are also cherished due to the photographers who took them: Lola and Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Brassaï, Tina Modotti, Martin Munkácsi, Man Ray, Pierre Verger and Edward Weston are just a few.
