Spanning nearly a century, Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer's Journey is a poignant memoir illustrated with over 190 of the author's own photographs.  Guerrero steps out from behind the camera, and for the very first time, tells his story along with the stories of the contradictory and complex lives of the extraordinary people he has known, including candid anecdotes about the personal quirks of some of America's legendary magazine editors, architects and artists. 

Pedro Guerrero spent his entire career, nearly 60 years, photographing the houses of some of the most illustrious of America's architects and artists of the twentieth century. Emerging from a modest background, his first professional job at the age of 22 in 1939 was photographing Taliesin West, the Arizona home of Frank Lloyd Wright.  For the next 20 years, Guerrero was the chief visual interpreter of of Wright's homes, producing the only visual record of Wright's work as it appeared on completion.  Guerrero was soon photographing houses belonging to such legendary artists and architects as Alexander Calder, Louise Nevelson, Marcel Breuer, John Huston, Philip Johnson, Julia Child, Edward Stone and Alexi Brodovitch. 

Pedro Guerrero's photographs have appeared in numerous publications worldwide, including the New York Times Magazine, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Architectural Record, Travel and Leisure and House and Garden.  He has contributed to many books and has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the world.  He lives in Florence, Arizona.

Gnosis, Ltd. (www.gnosisltd.org) has recently completed a 70-minute documentary on the life and work of Pedro E. Guerrero, best known as Frank Lloyd Wright's personal photographer.  The production also features Guerrero's work with Alexander Calder, creator of the mobile, and pioneering sculptor, Louise Nevelson and many of his other notable subjects.  Photographs selected from  Guerrero's 60-year historical archive illustrate this story of a man who came from humble beginnings but went on to photograph the work of some of the country's most celebrated artists and architects.

Mr. Guerrero's own voice serves as the foundation of this poignant documentary, balanced by comments from mid-Century photographer Julius Shulman, former NYC Museum of Modern Art curator Terence Riley, Whitney Museum curator and art consultant Richard Marshall, architecture critic and historian Ada Louise Huxtable, members of the Frank Lloyd Wright Fellowship, as well as family members and personal friends.
