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 nineteenth century, she kept photographs that she also intervened upon, cutting things out from them, writing dedications on them and personalizing hem as if they were paintings.
