About Pedro E. Guerrero:

 

‘Born in 1917 in Casa Grande, Arizona, Pedro E. Guerrero attended Art Center School in Los Angeles from 1937 to 1939. In the late fall of 1939 he became a photographer for Frank Lloyd Wright at his Arizona home, Taliesin West. Since then his photographs have been featured in nearly every major publication by and about Wright since they were first published in the 1940 book In The Nature of Materials. Guerrero was also the photographer for sculptors Louise Nevelson and Alexander Calder.

 

‘His photographs have been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States and Europe, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art. He is the author of Picturing Wright: An Album from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Photographer (1993), Calder at Home: The Joyous Environment of Alexander Calder (1998), and Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey with Frank Lloyd Wright, Alexander Calder, and Louise Nevelson (2007).’
