Plot Summary

"A Photographer's Journey" captures the remarkable life and work of Pedro Guerrero (1917-2012). He left behind thousands of photographs and nearly 15 hours of interviews beautifully shot in 2011. This film tells, in his own words, the remarkable story of a Mexican American boy born and raised in segregated Mesa, Arizona in the early years of the 20th century who goes on to a remarkable international career. Through his lens and voice we will explore Pedro's unique perspective on life, art, architecture and the artists he encountered. Guerrero used his outsider's eye to produce insightful and iconic portraits of Frank Lloyd Wright, Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson as well as important images of modernist architecture. He was the first Hispanic to enroll in Wright's Taliesin Fellowship in 1939. Yet his story is largely unknown. Written by Paradigm Productions

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia In the PBS "American Masters" airing of this artists work there are prominent black bars concealing parts of the artist's photographs of models. Guerrero is an important enough artist to be on "American Masters" but pornographic enough to have his work mutilated and obscured by PBS. See more »
