Pedro E. Guerrero is one of the most well-known and accomplished photographers in the world. He has worked with some of America’s top magazines. He has worked with military gunners and turned them into talented photographers in their own right and even worked with one Frank Lloyd Wright just to name a few of his many accomplishments. Now thanks to PBS, audiences will learn about all of that and much more next month when PBS and PBS Distribution release a very special episode of its hit bio series American Masters.
PBS and PBS Distribution will release American Masters: Pedro E. Guerrero–A Photographer’s Journey next month. It will be released on Tuesday, November 17th and will be released exclusively on DVD. The program focuses on the legacy left behind by the famed photographer. It follows Guerrero’s life from his earliest days enrolled in photography classes and his time serving in World War II, to his work in the worlds of media and advertising, to his work with the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright and others. As an added bonus, PBS will feature via the American Masters website a digital exhibit of Guerrero’s work. American Masters will also launch an Instagram project (#PedroPBS) that encourages viewers to share their own local art and architecture photos. The best photos will be featured online via American Masters’ website, the series’ official YouTube channel, and PBS’ other social media outlets.
