Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey

Photographing Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings with a Large Format Camera

Pedro E. Guerrero began his career by photographing Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West in Scottsdale, AZ, where the architect made his winter home and studio. Already at the age of 22, Guerrero was skillfully capturing texture and depth in a two-dimensional medium. Architectural photographer Norman McGrath and an animation help explain Guerrero’s use of a 4×5 large format camera. In an original interview, Guerrero also comments on one of his favorite Taliesin West photos – one that shows the shadows of high noon.
