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.

Description: Guerrero steps out from behind the camera, and for the very first time, tells his story along with the stories of the contradictory and complex lives of the extraordinary people he has known.

Emerging from a modest background, his first professional job at the age of 22 in 1939 was photographing Taliesin West, the Arizona home of Frank Lloyd Wright. For the next 20 years, Guerrero was the chief visual interpreter of of Wright's homes, producing the only visual record of Wright's work as it appeared on completion. With over 190 of the author's own photographs. (Publisher’s description.) Original hard cover list price $55.00.

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."
