Pedro E. Guerrero photography at gallery in Hollywood

George Sturges House, Los Angeles, 1947 by Pedro E. Guerrero. The home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1939.

"Pedro E Guerrero: Photographs of Modern Life" is on exhibition at the Woodbury University Hollywood Gallery through April 25. Guerrero, who is now 94, was born in Casa Grande, Arizona in 1917 and attended the Art Center School in Los Angeles (now Art Center College of Design in Pasadena) from 1937 to 1939. He left school to work for architect Frank Lloyd Wright, starting at Taliesin West. He served as the architect's photographer and friend for twenty years.

He was honored recently by Woodbury's Julius Shulman Institute and by Art Center. "I am deeply honored to receive this important award," Guerrero said in the flackage. "The training and encouragement I received at the Art Center School 75 years ago changed my life forever."

Here's a nice piece on Guerrero by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp on KCRW.

The gallery is at 6518 Hollywood Boulevard and is open Thursdays 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
