Frida Kahlo: Her Photos

Edited by Pablo Ortiz Monasterio. Text by James Oles, Horacio Fernandez, Masayo Nonaka, Laura González, Mauricio Ortíz, Gerardo Estrada, Rainer Huhle, Gaby Franger.

A trove of more than 6,000 photographs from Frida Kahlo's personal collection was recently unsealed at the artist's former home, Casa Azul, now a museum. A selection has been published in the stunning new book, <a href="9788492480753.html">Frida Kahlo: Her Photos</a>. Featured image, from the book, captures Kahlo and friends Rufino Tamayo, Adalgisa Nery, Lourival Fontes and Olga Tamayo, out for the evening circa 1945. When Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) died in 1954, her husband Diego Rivera asked the poet Carlos Pellicer to turn her family home, the fabled Blue House, into a museum. Pellicer selected some paintings, drawings, photographs, books and ceramics, maintaining the space just as Kahlo and Rivera had arranged it to live and work in. The rest of the objects, clothing, documents, drawings and letters, as well as over 6,000 photographs collected by Kahlo over the course of her life, were put away in bathrooms that had been converted into storerooms. This incredible trove remained hidden for more than half a century, until, just a few years ago, these storerooms and wardrobes were opened up. Kahlo's photograph collection was a major revelation among these finds, a testimony to the tastes and interests of the famous couple, not only through the images themselves but also through the telling annotations inscribed upon them. Frida Kahlo: Her Photos allows us to speculate about Kahlo's and Rivera's likes and dislikes, and to document their family origins; it supplies a thrilling and hugely significant addition to our knowledge of Kahlo's life and work.

Private entertainments or public show? Frida Kahlo: Her Photos

Private entertainments or public show? Frida Kahlo: Her Photos

This 1930 photograph of Frida Kahlo, pregnant, at Casa Azul—the family home she shared with Diego Rivera in Coyoacán, Mexico City—is reproduced from Frida Kahlo: Her Photos. On the back, Kahlo has written, "Here's a picture of your girl in August 1930, and to you she dedicates this photo with buten [sic] of amore. Freon." Casa Azul provides the setting for many of the most dramatic and fascinating photographs in this collection. "Amidst an array of exotic animals—parrots, xoloescuintle dogs, monkeys and deer—the guests in the Casa Azul were part of the private entertainments (paintings, letters, diaries, drawings, and photographs) that would soon be transformed into a public show," Laura González Flores writes. "These photographs are fascinating not because of the objective information we can draw from them, but because the Casa Azul social drama is congealed in them in a kind of everlasting present." Some, however, "accidentally unveil that which the mask-image has striven to hide." continue to blog
