Carla Stellweg, art critic and curator, gives the reader a very detailed outline of Frida's life and matches the photographs with a chronology of Frida's emotional and artistic evolution as a fully fledged, yet flawed, human being. I cherish this book as a quick guide to Frida's life, and I keep it on my dresser under reprints of her art.

Publisher's Description. Extravagantly beautiful and psychologically complex, Frida Kahlo was a legend in her lifetime, and, nearly forty years after her death, that legend has evolved into a myth. Kahlo's intimate, often painfully revealing self-portraits have become contemporary icons. In this collection of 70 photographs of Frida Kahlo, many never before published, taken from her childhood until her death in 1954, she is shown as innocent, comic, seductress, political activist, and mystery.

Extravagantly beautiful and psychologically complex, Frida Kahlo was a legend in her lifetime, and, nearly forty years after her death, that legend has evolved into a myth. Her intimate, often painfully revealing self-portraits have become contemporary icons. In life, she was a bejeweled, exotically draped, glamorous presence. But it was her face that mesmerized people, especially the parade of photographers who sought her out as a subject. In this collection of 70 photographs of Frida Kahlo, many never before published, taken from her childhood until her death in 1954, she is shown as innocent, comic, seductress, political activist, and mystery. Photographers as diverse as Ansel Adams, Nicolas Muray, Gisele Freund, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, and Imogen Cunningham attempted to penetrate the mask. But what each photographer was drawn into was a less-than-equal collaboration in which Kahlo was always the winner. Thick trademark eyebrows over piercing eyes, sealed lips, upswept braided hair, and regal deportment defied photographic interpretation but guaranteed portraits that would seduce. Who was Frida? For the millions who have been fascinated by her powerful allure, here are the clues, embedded in a sequence of haunting and enigmatic portraits.

This book contains 60 B&W photographs of the legendary Frida Kahlo taken by some of the most famous photographers of the time: Ansel Adams, Lucienne Bloch, Lola & Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Imogen Cummingham, Frida's father Guillermo Kahlo, Nickolas Muray and others. The photos range from early childhood to her last days. A few of the photos I had not seen before but most of the photos in this book can be found in other more recent books on Kahlo. Although many beautiful color photographs of Frida were taken beginning in the late 1930s, none of them appear in this book....everything is in B&W.

In the beginning pages of the book, Elena Poniatowska writes Frida's memoirs as though she were Frida. At the end of the book, Carla Stellweg writes an essay covering the high points of Kahlo's life and her turbulent marriage to the famous Mexican muralist, Diego Rivera. In the back of the book there is a detailed chronology as well as a description of each photograph. The focus of this book is on the photographs. Although there are a few photos of Kahlo's paintings, not much is mentioned about her art.

Beautiful photographs and was not expecting the size, very large book a good book for artist like myself who need reference when drawing or painting something. Not much info but does have dates and who took the photos which is always nice.

What a beauty Frida was. In her prime, you can understand why she seduced so many people. Just exquisite! However, this book doesn't evade her decline. In the later years, you can see a hardened face from inner turmoil and illness. This book stands as superb for diehard Frida admirers.

The Camera seduced is more that I was hoping for.The memoirs written by the great Elena Poniatowska Amor is more an insight of Frida that only Elena knows what to write because she is part of that generation that change the mexican literature and painting.The photos is like a glipse in that extraordinary woman,Frida Khalo.Thanks to Eric for mailing it,is really a piece of maestry and greatness..Now is along my favorites books in my library.
