Photos Of Frida Kahlo Dressed As A Young Man In 1924

Frida Kahlo’s father Guillermo Kahlo took these great photographs of the artist dressed as a young man in 1924.

This is Frida the rebel, pulling on a three-piece suit and tie, slicking back her hair, adopting a fixed and purposeful look, and the stance of a young man about town. Everything about her in the picture is a sign of her self-expression, the fluidity of gender and her refusal to adhere to fixed masculine or feminine characteristics.
