Pedro Guerrero's Photography on Display until April 20

The exhibit "Guerrero & Wright: Architecture Stories" is open to the public at the Art Gallery at Eastern Connecticut State University through April 20. The exhibition consists of 33 photographs from the estate of the late Pedro Guerrero, the Mexican-American photographer chosen by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright to document his work. "Guerrero & Wright: Architecture Stories" also celebrates the centennial of Guerrero's birth in 1917.

In 1939, Guerrero traveled to Taliesin West in Scottsdale, AZ, in search of a job. Luckily for Guerrero, Wright was in the midst of building the campus and needed someone to document the process. Wright soon recognized Guerrero's talent, as well as the young photographer's ability to translate his architectural forms to film.

Guerrero worked as Wright's chief photographer for decades, traveling the country to photograph many of Wright's most notable public and private commissions. Published in architectural journals and mass-market magazines alike, Guerrero's photographic "architecture stories" shaped the public perception of the architect and his work.

Guerrero is the author of "Picturing Wright, An Album from Frank Lloyd Wright's Photographer" (1993) and "Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer's Journey" (2007), among others. His work has been widely exhibited in both the United States and Europe.
