Pedro E. Geurrero: Photographs of Modern Life, on view now through April 25 at Woodbury University Hollywood Space, is the first extensive exhibition on the West Coast of Pedro E. Guerrero’s PHOT 40 career as one of the most prolific architectural photographers of the 20th Century.
The exhibition, curated by Emily Bills and Anthony Fontenot, highlights the diversity of Guerrero’s subjects taken over seven decades, which included the architecture of Marcel Breuer, Philip Johnson, Edward Durell Stone and Eero Saarinen, and ranged from portraits of architects to to commercial work for House & Garden, Vogue, The New York Times Magazine and Architectural Record.
He is perhaps best known for his close relationship with Frank Lloyd Wright, for whom he served as the architect’s photographer and friend for 20 years. The exhibition will feature Guerrero’s illuminating portraits of the architect, including 12 photographs of Wright’s hands demonstrating the difference between organic and conventional architecture at the Plaza Hotel in New York.
