Frida Kahlo and Tina Modotti.
Great artists (Frida a painter, Tina a photographer), political activists, communists, friends, companions, revolutionaries. In August 1929, Modotti hosted Frida’s wedding to painter Diego Rivera.
I wonder what would have happened if they had had been reunited when Modotti returned to México in 1942… if she hadn’t died that same year…
no1curr sidenote: Tina Modotti was born right here in Udine, a couple of blocks away from my house. I was introduced to her photography by my father, who has always been an ardent admirer of her outstanding work. :)
