Art and architecture photographer Pedro Guerrero, most well known as the photographer of Frank Lloyd Wright’s later work, died September 13 at age 95 at his home in Florence, Arizona. Guerrero, who was Wright’s exclusive photographer in the last two decades of the architect’s life, was the photographer for some of the most iconic images of Wright’s building and Wright himself.
Prolific in his work capturing modernism, Guerrero also was photographer for many buildings designed by other architects, including Philip Johnson and Marcel Breuer, and artists such as Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson. His photographs have been widely published, and he authored a 2007 autobiography Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey with Frank Lloyd Wright, Alexander Calder, and Louise Nevelson.
See the New York Times obituary for more information about Guerrero and to see examples of his photography. According the New York Times story, Guerrero had said that the living room of Wright’s Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin, was the most beautiful interior he had ever seen.
