He was Frank Lloyd Wright's favorite architect and Pedro Guerrero (1917-2012) spent his six-decade career photographing houses of some of the most prolific American architects and artists of the past century. A new documentary “A Photographer's Journey" by Yvan Iturriaga and Ray Telles comes to capture the remarkable story and work of the Mexican American artist/photographer who has left behind thousands of photographs and 15 hours of interviews shot in 2011. The film will broadcast in PBS on September 13th. From Mesa, Arizona, where he was raised, Guerrero became the first Hispanic to enroll in FLW’s Taliesin Fellowship in 1939, and then came to create a remarkable international career that included iconic portraits of Frank Lloyd Wright, Alexander Calder, Marcel Breuer, Philip Johnson, and Louise Nevelson, along some of the most poetic images of modern architecture.
