Pure your gentle name, pure your fragile life,bees, shadows, fire, snow, silence and foam,combined with steel and wire andpollen to make up your firmand delicate being.-Pablo Neruda's epitaph for Tina ModottiBorn in Italy in 1896, photographer Tina Modotti lived an extraordinary life.

She is portrayed in several of Diego Rivera's murals and, as Rivera's photographer, she photographed many of his murals as he worked and after they were completed.Deeply involved in the revolutionary movements of her time, she fought in Spain's Civil War in the 1930s, where she met Pablo Neruda. She later lived in the Soviet Union but found the repressive atmosphere there stifling.

She died there at the age of forty-six.
