Susan Guerrero said her father had suffered from cancer for several years and died Thursday at his home in Florence, Ariz.

Pedro Guerrero is mostly known for his images of Wright and the architect’s work, but he also photographed the lives and works of artists Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson.

After attending the Art Center School in Los Angeles, Guerrero got his first photography job after he visited Wright‘s home near Scottsdale in 1939. His 15-minute interview with Wright opened up doors for him professionally for years to come. “He was open sesame, wherever I went,” Guerrero told the Casa Grande Dispatch in 2001.

He worked as a photographer at the architect’s homes in Scottsdale and Wisconsin for a year. Then, after serving in the Army Air Corps during World War II, he returned to his work as Wright’s photographer until the architect’s death in 1959.

He published books on Wright, Calder and Nevelson and did freelance work for magazines such as House and Garden, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar.
