ARTbreak : Video : Pedro E. Guerreo : A Photographic Journey

Dates: Tue Oct 11, 16

Time: 12:00pm

Kalamazoo Institute of Arts Auditorium
314 South Park Street
Kalamazoo, MI 49007


Explore the life and work of photographer Pedro E. Guerrero, a Mexican American, born and raised in segregated Mesa, Arizona, who had an extraordinary international photography career.

This video highlights the milestones in Guerrero's life: his serendipitous enrollment in photography classes, his 1939 meeting with Wright at Taliesin West, his World War II service and his post-war magazine photography career in New York City, shooting interiors while his work with Wright continued. Guerrero describes his life after Wright's death, his work with Alexander Calder and the end of his magazine assignments because of his vocal opposition to the Vietnam War. This led to more work with Calder, and eventually, Louise Nevelson. After Nevelson's death, Guerrero returned to Arizona, where he lived until his death at age 95.
