  KAHLO Guillermo/Food in Photography/ STORE/ MAIN
Born in 1962, Mexican photographer Guillermo Kahlo belongs to the fourth generation of a family dedicated to visual arts. His great-grandfather, also named Guillermo Kahlo, was a prominent architecture photographer and father of the renowned painter, Frida Kahlo.

During the last twelve years Guillermo has been dedicated to photography, more specifically to the practice of portrait and food photography. The result of his approach in both genres has been the creation of images characterized by simplicity, elegance and dramatic force. He has developed the visual concept and created the photography for four books about Mexican gastronomy. His work has been exhibited in Mexico, United States, Europe and South Africa, and has been published in several magazines including Food and Wine and Conde Nast Publications.
