A selection of 257 images from the 6,500 which are part of the Blue House archive. These have served as memories to Frida, as work tools or as a means to exorcise solitude. The exhibition is curated by the acknowledged Mexican photographer and photography historian Pablo Ortiz Monasterio, shows the importance of this medium in Frida’s life. Frida Kahlo had a very special relationship with photography. Besides her personal background – both her father, Guillermo Kahlo, and her maternal grandmother were professional photographers – she brought different uses to photography: she collected daguerreotypes and calling cards from the XIX century, she kept photographs that she also intervened upon, cutting things out from them, writing dedications on them and personalizing them as if they were paintings.
