In 1939 Guerrero was hired by Frank Lloyd Wright to photograph himself and his work. This began a 20-year association during which Guerrero documented the evolution of Taliesin in Arizona from a camp into a renowned architectural community. Guerrero also captured Wright on film at Taliesin East in Wisconsin, at his suite in New York, and at work sites. Wright's apprentices are seen learning their trade and even growing their own food. Guerrero masterfully combines candid and posed duotones with perhaps the finest photographs ever taken of Wright's extraordinary structures. Some of the photos are the only ones documenting projects on completion, before the changes made by subsequent owners. Guerrero's candid and entertaining stories complete this important addition to the extensive body of work about the architect. Though not intended to rival William Allin Storrer's The Frank Lloyd Wright Companion (LJ 2/1/ 94), this is a more human, impressionistic volume. Recommended for most libraries.Daniel J.
