The Diary of Frida Kahlo

The job of photographing Kahlo's diary was assigned to Bob for doing the photography in one three-day session with a large format (4 x 5 inches) Sinar camera.

Secretaría de Educación Pública

Bob photographed the famous murals by Diego Rivera at the Public Education Ministry in Mexico City. He took the images with the Sinar, large format camera. Since the building is used for the SEP office work during the day, the team had to work at night, which was necessary so as not light the murals in a perfect way. These images have been published in many Mexican Art books. They have also been printed in full scale in exhibitions in the United States and Europe.
