Library Journal, March 15, 2007 
  
Through 190 black-and-white photographs, this book documents his life and journey. It also provides an intimate look into the lives of those he photographed and came to know personally: Frank Lloyd Wright and sculptors Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson. As the collection shows, Guerrero was a master at capturing the nuances of his subjects. His images are executed with technical skill and reveal the character of larger-than-life figures who are less known for their personalities than the work they left behind. And therein lies the true value of this book.  
  
New York Times, March 22, 2007 
  
The pictures are striking in a new memoir by Pedro E. Guerrero, the photographer known for chronicling the life and work of Frank Lloyd Wright. But it is the story of Mr. Guerrero's life, told in his own modest words, that is richer and more urgent, particularly when he writes about serving as the sole dove on a draft board during the Vietnam War, which cost him a lucrative 20-year carreer at House & Garden.  
  
Book Description 
  
Pedro Guerrero spent his entire career, more than 60 years, photographing houses of some of the most illustrious American architects and artists of the twentieth century. Emerging from a modest background, his first professional job at the age of twenty-two in 1939 was photographing Taliesin West, the Arizona home of Frank Lloyd Wright. For the next 20 years, Guerrero was the chief visual interpreter of Wright's homes. Guerrero was soon photographing houses belonging to such legendary artists and architects as Alexander Calder, Louise Nevelson, Marcel Breuer, John Huston, Philip Johnson, Julia Child, Edward Stone, and Alexi Brodovitch. Spanning nearly a century, Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer's Journey is a fascinating memoir illustrated with over 190 of the author's own photographs. Guerrero steps out from behind the camera and, for the first time, tells his own story along with the stories of the contradictory and complex lives of the extraordinary people he has known, including candid anecdotes about the personal quirks of some of America's legendary magazine editors, architects, and artists.
