The more we know about Frida Kahlo the more we fall in love with her as an artist and as a human being

Isn’t it amazing that Frida’s father was a photographer ? The fact that we are able to see her as a toddler, how she looked like when she was a child is mindblowing. Lucky for us he photographed her throughout her childhood and these rare photos that make us love her even more now.

Worth mentioning about Frida’s father: Commonly know as Guillermo Kahlo Kaufmann was a German Mexican photographer who photographically documented important architectural works, churches, streets, landmarks, as well as industries and companies in Mexico at the beginning of the 20th century; meaning that his work has not only artistic value but also historical importance.
