Check Out These Rare and Beautiful Photos of Young Frida Kahlo By Her Father Guillermo

Have you ever imagined how great artists looked like when they were kids? Well, in this case you don’t have to use your imagination. Frida Kahlo had this luck to be a daughter of a photographer, who took her photos all her childhood. Carl Wilhelm Kahlo Kauffmann (26 October 1871 – 14 April 1941), commonly known as Guillermo Kahlo, photographically documented important architectural works, churches, streets, landmarks, as well as industries and companies in Mexico at the beginning of the 20th century; meaning that his work has not only artistic value but also historical importance. Here we present these rare photos of Frida from the age of 2 to 18 taken by him:
