Though her paintings and journals, surrealist Frida Kahlo left a legacy ripe with raw emotion and artistic sensibility. Before Frida ever picked up a pencil, she was mesmerized by her father, Wilhelm Kahlo. A prominent photographer in turn of the century Mexico, “Guillermo” as he liked to be called, made great strides in portrait and architectural photography. In 1925, when a young Frida was hospitalized due to a horrific streetcar accident, it was Guillermo that supplied her with a box of oil paintings and some brushes. Her legacy was instantly cemented with pain-ridden portrayals of that faithful day. This Thursday, Frida’s grandniece, Cristina, offers a presentation titled Time Under Mexico’s Light—a personal and historic take on Guillermo’s importance in early 20th century Mexican photography.
