Tina Modotti. In 1930 she was jailed for her alleged participation in an attempted assassination of Mexican President Pascual Ortiz Rubio and was then deported from Mexico. She photographed briefly and without distinction in Berlin before moving to Moscow. There she more or less abandoned photography in order to devote her energies to International Red Aid, the Comintern’s international social service agency. Modotti became the companion of Italian Stalinist Vittorio Vidali.

Tina Modotti, Hollywood, 1920-21. Tina Modotti began her career as an actress, transitioned to photography after becoming a model for Edward Weston, and later traveled Mexico with him, evolving into a major proponent of the Mexican mural movement of Diego Rivera and others. She then became a political activist with the Mexican Communist Party, and, after her expulsion from Mexico by the government, lived in Moscow and then Spain working with various communist and liberal organizations.

Tina Modotti "I put too much art in my life, consequently I have not much left to give to art." (Tina Modotti) Puro es tu dulce nombre, pura es tu frágil vida: de abeja, sombra, fuego, nieve silencio espuma,de acero, línea polense construyó tu férrea, tu delgada estructura... Extract from the poem Tina Modotti by Pablo Neruda, 1942
