Her self portraits made artist and icon Frida Kahlo’s life bigger than others, one gently insisting its personal story into the cultural and political telling of the history of the recent century. Friends and other artists, including famous photographers, documented and art-ified her very public commitments, with Kahlo’s self-aware and disciplined chronicling of her struggles and achievements artfully memorialized in thousands of photographs of her as gorgeous, wounded, talented observer-engager with all she saw and those drawn to her. Nearly 250 photos from Kahlo’s personal collection add to the legend, with the Bowers presenting another opportunity for Fridaphiles to celebrate both her work and that of Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, Lola and Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Martin Munkácsi and other collaborators in creating the legend.
