More than 200 photographs by Man Ray, Martin Munkácsi, Fritz Henle, Edward Weston, Brassai, Tina Modotti, Pierre Verger, among others.
The photographs are part of a collection of 6,500 images that were uncovered after being locked away for five decades in the house where Kahlo was born and died, La Casa Azul, preserved as a museum in the Mexico City neighborhood of Coyacan. Mostly dating from the 1930s and 1940s, the images were selected by Pablo Ortíz Monasterio, a widely respected Mexican photographer and photography historian.

In its first 41 days in Tijuana, the exhibition, “Frida Kahlo, Her Photos,” has drawn more than 33,000 visitors to Cecut’s gallery, El Cubo, making it the most popular exhibition since the space’s opening in 2008. The enthusiasm has inspired Cecut director Pedro Ochoa to build a series of complementary events that includes movies, lectures, children’s workshops and extended hours on museum nights.

The Cecut's gallery realized a very interesting micro website dedicated to the exhibition, including a guided tour. Check it out at the link below.
