With the self- confidence of a genius, he frightened the moderately well-to-do citizens of Oak Park and other Westside suburbs into putting up homes in the horizontal ‘Prairie Style.’ Many of these were surprisingly lovely and even elegant, no matter if the eaves sometimes seem too heavy and the interior is too dark..."

HEDRICH BLESSING Ken Hedrich and Henry Blessing founded Hedrich Blessing in 1929. When Blessing left for Denver within the year, brother Ed Hedrich came in to manage the office. In 1931 brother Bill came on board as the first of hundreds of photographic assistants who would learn their craft at HB.
In 1937 Architectural Forum magazine commissioned Hedrich Blessing to photograph recent works of Frank Lloyd Wright. Ken made several trips to Taliesin and formed another lifelong collaboration with Wright. Bill’s images of the Kaufman residence in Pennsylvania so captured the essence of Wright’s masterpiece that it reputedly inspired the name “Falling Water”.
Although most widely known for its architectural photography, from the outset Hedrich Blessing has been a commercial studio working with designers in related fields such as industrial, annual report, product and editorial photography.
Today five photographers build upon Hedrich Blessing traditions. Each began as a photographic assistant and was mentored by one or more of their predecessors. Remarkably, there have been only eighteen photographers on camera in the firm’s 80 year history. Collaborative relationships with architects and designers remain a hallmark at Hedrich Blessing.

GILMAN LANE Possibly a self portrait by Gilman Lane, American Photography, June, 1918, page 364. Courtesy of American Photography. Gilman Lane photographed building in the Chicago area including many of Wright’s work. Upon his death in 1961, Lane donated his collection of over 700 photographs to the Oak Park Public Library. According to William Jerousek, Librarian at the OPPL, Lane was an industrial arts teacher at the Oak Park-River Forest High School from 1923 to 1957.
But Lane's interest in photograph proceeded his teaching career in Oak Park. In the June, 1918 issue of American Photography, he wrote lengthy technical article entitled "A Daylight Enlarger to be used in any Lighted Room". It reads like an article written by one professional photographer to another. This leads one to wonder if he may have tried his hand as a professional photographer, but opted for the steady paycheck as a teacher, never giving up his first love of photography.
Whether a one-time professional, part time freelance, or "amateur", the results were anything but amateur. He left an early record of over 150 Wright buildings. In the seminal Biography of Wright's Work by Henry-Russell Hitchcock, "The Nature of Materials", Hitchcock credits Henry Fuermann and Sons, and "another important group of photographs taken by Gilman Lane... who has been photographing Wright's work for many years, and who has taken many new photographs particularly for this book."

GRANT CARPENTER MANSON (1904-1997) Grant Carpenter Manson (1904-1997) Architectural historian Grant Carpenter Manson first met Mr. Wright in 1938. He had decided to make Wright the subject of his doctoral dissertation while at Harvard. He felt it essential to meet Wright and so in September he headed toward Spring Green from Massachusetts. Upon reaching Chicago, he placed a call to Spring Green and asked the operator “to put him through to Mr. Wright”. He heard his voice for the first time. Manson took photographs between 1937 and 1941 while researching for his doctoral dissertation titled “Frank Lloyd Wright's Work Before 1910". While a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, he elaborated his thesis and published his book “Frank Lloyd Wright to 1910: The First Golden Age" in 1958. Upon publication, Manson hand delivered a copy of the book to Wright in New York.
Mr. Manson gave the photographs and other materials to the library in July 1973. Grant Carpenter Manson (1904-1997).
