Born in Berlin in 1908, Gisèle Freund, a pioneer of photojournalism and color photography, considered photography a means of revealing the man to humanity. Her portraits are a privileged testimony of intellectual life of the her era. During her stay in Mexico in 1950, Gisèle knew the legendary couple Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera and shot these powerful photos, snapshots of their private life moments.



“Ten photographers in front of the same subject produce ten different images, because if it is true that photography translates the real, it is revealed according to the eye of the beholder.”
