Lucky indeed--What a fantastic photograph. Frida Kahlo is one of my all-time favorite artists. I love her use of vibrant colors with often "dark" imagery. Fantastic.
In our premiere blog post, archivist Jennifer Snyder considers a stolen moment between two artists.
How lucky was Florence Arquin to have caught this moment on film? Frida and Diego certainly were not shy about showing their affection for one another in front of others. But this moment, shot from afar, through scaffolding and building construction, was not necessarily meant for public consumption.
Was this a quick kiss in greeting or goodbye? Or was it a passionate kiss? Did Florence catch this moment out of the corner of her eye and decide to quickly snap a picture? Or had she been watching them through her lens for awhile?
They look like as if they have a secret love unfolding. I like the photo through the scaffolding.
