Frida Kahlo standing next to an agave plant, 'Señoras of Mexico' 1937
Never comfortable in the traditional studio setting, female photographer Toni Frissell was known for bringing fashion photography outside in an almost cinematic style. Captured in 1937 while Frissell was a staff photographer for Vogue magazine, Frida Kahlo standing next to an agave plant is an outtake from a shoot accompanying “Señoras of Mexico”, an editorial feature and interview by Alice-Leone Moats. Frissell’s tendency to use a low point of view and dramatic angles shines through, making Kahlo appear larger-than-life, almost monumental in stature. Frissell and Kahlo proved to be an unmatchable pair. Frissell’s distinct, unconventional style of photography complimented Kahlo’s identity as a proud mestiza artist known for juxtaposing traditional Mexican and modern Western fashion. The resulting photographs would become some of the most famous and recognisable images of the painter.
