Frida and Diego at lunch in Coyoacan (Frida's house), fall 1941.
Rollardcord camera, Panatonic film
This is an unposed photograph. Several times during the long mid-day meal, Frida, because her spine hurt, would get up and walk a little. Often she stopped to embrace Diego's head, which pleased him. I just said (because I had my camera shooting everything that day), "Please just stay exactly like you are for a minute so I can photograph you". They did.
