PBS Film Explores the Life of Frank Lloyd Wright Photographer Pedro E. Guerrero

PBS Film Explores the Life of Frank Lloyd Wright Photographer Pedro E. Guerrero

PBS’ American Masters series and Latino Public Broadcasting’s VOCES series have teamed up for the first time to delve into the life and work of Pedro E. Guerrero, a Mexican American photographer from Mesa, Arizona, who is known for his photography of the works of Frank Lloyd Wright, among other artists.

The film, Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey, explores Guerrero’s photography, showing his collaboration with Frank Lloyd Wright to “produce insightful portraits of important modernist architecture,” which launched him to become “one of the most sought-after photographers of the ‘Mad Men’ era.” While Guerrero was extremely popular at the time, his story today is still largely unknown.

Find out more about milestones of Guerrero’s life—“his 1939 meeting with Wright at Taliesin West (Scottsdale, AZ), […] his post-war magazine photography career in New York City, shooting interiors while his work with Wright continued,” and other events—by watching the film, above. Read more about the production of Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey, here.

Note: The documentary can only be streamed from within the US.
