I have always loved photographing buildings, and one of my career highlights has been the opportunity to photograph the homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. These Arizona homes demonstrate Wright’s sensitivity to solar access and climate and his pivotal role as a pioneer in sustainable design. Considering that with one exception, these homes were built before his death in 1959, the way he advanced design is even more remarkable. His use of overhangs, designing the landscaping to work with the home and solar exposure, the interior play of light and shadows, and use of experimental materials in these desert homes are a joy to photograph. I was able to digitally process these film images for use by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, and I am pleased to be part of the Conservancy’s important work.
