The exhbition consists of about 60 photographs by the couple’s parents about their childhood, “the passion and the torment” of their love affair, their two marriages to one another, the process whereby they created their artwork and murals, but also their deaths and their political leanings.

In addition, there are photos taken by Guillermo Kahlo, Frida’s father, and by well-known photographer Guillermo Zamora, along with others by “unknown” photographers.

Also to be found in the exposition, are photos of Kahlo’s childhood at her home in Guanajuato, both artists participating in a painters’ march, the emblematic Casa Azul, attending a communist party event, Rivera’s study and his murals, on a trip to New York, their second marriage and at each of their funerals.

CAF representative in Bolivia Florentino Fernandez said that the exhibit of never-before-displayed photos is “very important for fostering this kind of activity” that can create an “impact” on the culture of the countries of the region.

The exhibit is on display at the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF) cultural gallery in La Paz.
