Frida by Ishiuchi (2013) is the first ever photographic documentation of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo's archive of dresses and personal belongings. Portrayed by Japanese artist Miyako Ishiuchi, the book gives an intimate view of Ishiuchi's very personal take on Kahlo's private universe. Following her acclaimed series Mother’s (2005) and Hiroshima (2007), Frida Kahlo's archive presents once again the soft yet powerful style of Ishiuchi, transforming still, quotidian objects into rich evocations of memories and lives. As a female artist looking at the wardrobe of another female artist, Ishiuchi reveals an intuitive poetry of what it is to dress and how these items are worn. A very special and unique documentation of Kahlo’s archive is presented by Miyako Ishiuchi in this unforgettable book, Frida by Ishiuchi.
