Through The Lens of a Lover

Nikolas Murray was a successful New York fashion photographer known for his portraits of celebrities—but perhaps his most famous subject was the artist Frida Kahlo. Murray met her when traveling through Mexico on a vacation in 1931 and the two became lovers; they remained friends and confidants until her death in 1954. From this intimate perspective comes the 50 portraits in the collection Frida Kahlo: Through the Lens of Nikolas Murray, a traveling exhibition presented by the Fort Collins Museum of Art. The exhibit runs through January 8, 2017. —Cara McDonald
