Magnificent Architectural Photography by Pedro E. Guerrero

Architecture in and of itself is an admirable vocation, but it is photography that makes its greatness known to the world. Julius Shulman, of course, has received much acclaim for his architectural photography, but many other magnificent photographers have not received the same deserved recognition for work in the fields of art and architecture. One such photographer is Pedro E. Guerrero, whose photography immortalized the work of greats such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Alexander Calder. Here is a small fraction of his breathtaking portfolio.
