Seeing this Photograph of Frida Kahlo in person was very significant because I was able to see the expressions on her face and the features of her appearance that she so desperately attempted to paint in her self portraits.
I was able to see her fascination with her own unique beauty and her inspiration for her own masterpieces. In this piece called "Frida Looking Into Mirror", the photographer, Lola Alvarez Bravo, captures intimate and private moments of Kahlo. A streetcar once knocked Kahlo down and had caused major injuries and pains that led her to be bedridden for some time. Kahlo believed this had caused her to have two sides, her dead one and her alive one.
This picture captures two images of Frida and their uniqueness but also symbolizes her inner duality and conflict. This artwork made me feel reflective and it allowed me to understand more about Frida Kahlo and how she thought. It communicated the darkness behind her beautiful artwork.
