The Hagan’s Quest For The Extraordinary

By Lyndon Conrad Bell There is much to be said for going directly to the source. Whenever possible, if you’re looking for the very best, the source is where you go. If you’re talking diamonds, you’re talking Antwerp, the center of the world’s diamond trade. If you’re talking rare colored stones, you’ll find yourself jetting to Bangkok. Pearls? Hong Kong is the place to be. Or… You can simply work with world travelers Linda and Joey Hagan, owners of Jewelry Creations in Dover, New Hampshire. They’ve already done the legwork for you. For more than thirty years, the Hagans have traveled to build longstanding relationships and hand select premium quality gems to please their distinguished clientele. Antwerp’s role in the international diamond trade goes back to the 15th century. In 1456, Lodewyk van Berken, a particularly

skilled diamond cutter working in Antwerp invented a device known as the scaif. At its essence, a polishing wheel infused with a mixture of olive oil and diamond dust, the scaif enabled van Berken to consistently move a diamond into the exact position needed for the optimum polishing of its facets. This made it possible for the first time to polish a diamond symmetrically—and at the angles that best reflected the light. The invention revolutionized the diamond cutting industry and

10

correspondingly, increased the popularity of diamonds. Diamond cutters from all over the world went to Antwerp to learn van Berken’s technique. This attracted an abundance of orders from European nobility—as well as other craftsmen—to Antwerp. This, in large part, helped establish the diamond trade there. Today, the section of Antwerp known as the Diamond Quarter is also often referred to as the Square Mile—because it covers an area of approximately one square mile. Within its confines pass more than $16 billion in polished diamonds each year and the Hagans are well acquainted with the area’s most prominent diamantaires. Joey Hagan says; “The personal relationships we’ve fostered over the years serve us well in this rather insular community. Here, hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars in deals are done on a handshake. This is a tradition going back for centuries. In Antwerp, you’re either in, or you’re not. Fortunately, we’re in.”

Linda Hagan agrees; “To enter this world you must be part of the jewelry community and even then you are not guaranteed entry. This is an amazing opportunity for our clients as well. We not only travel to Antwerp each year to purchase Jewelry Creations’ diamond inventory, but also to hand select very specific diamonds ordered by our clients. We sort through thousands of diamonds to find ones that not only meet but exceed their expectations.”

www.lxmagazines.com


Interestingly, these sorts of personal relationships govern much of the international jewelry trade. If you really want access to the finest, whether we’re talking Antwerp, Bangkok, or Hong Kong, it’s just as much about whom you know as it is what you know. The Hagans have been building relationships with Bangkok vendors for many years. Bangkok’s prominence in rare colored stones is unrivaled. Virtually every known precious gemstone is traded there. Concentrated in the Bang Rak district of central Bangkok, there are literally hundreds of shops selling everything from finished pieces to loose gems—as well every piece of equipment used by dealers. Thailand is also known for the richness of its gemstone mines. Bangkok is such a prominent aspect of the worldwide jewelry market; the Gemological Institute of America has a campus there. In such a sophisticated environment, you have to have a solid relationship with someone you can trust. Here’s where the Hagan’s years of trading with Bangkok serves them (and their customers) very well. The couple even visits mining operations in Thailand. Joey says; “We’ve been dealing with a number of our contacts in Bangkok for over twenty-five years. In Bang Rak, if you’re serious about getting the finest gemstones available, you absolutely must have someone you know looking out for you. We’re invited in by our hosts to hand select our own colored gemstones in Bangkok—just as we are with the diamonds we buy in Antwerp.”

Set to become the largest jewelry market in the world by 2015, it is imperative to any serious person in the jewelry industry to have ties to China. Interestingly, China’s pearl industry goes back as far as the third century. Further, reports of pearl finds in Chinese rivers date back to the fourth millennium B.C. China became the largest worldwide producer of cultured pearls in the 1980s. In 2010, China produced some 20 tons of marine cultured pearls and 1500 tons of fresh water cultured pearls. Set to become the largest jewelry market in the world by 2015, it is imperative to any serious person in the jewelry industry to have ties to China. Acutely aware of this, the Hagans routinely work with a number of select pearl dealers in Hong Kong. With so much selection available, finding the best quality can be difficult. Having experts in-country, guiding them to just the right merchandise, makes all the difference in the world.

...the Hagans ...genuinely love discovering extraordinary finds for their clients back home. These relationships, nurtured over many years of doing business in the worldwide jewelry industry, make the Hagans experts in the overseas jewelry markets. In addition to thoroughly enjoying traveling, the Hagans also genuinely love discovering extraordinary finds for their clients back home. Linda says, “When you literally watch stones mined in Thailand and then watch the cutters and polishers perform their magic before you as well, it makes bringing these beautiful gemstones home all the more personal and special. When I show one of these special gemstones I am able to convey the real magic of their discovery.”

This is why the Hagans do what they do, year after year. And, of course, if they just so happen to experience exciting travel adventures to exotic ports of call at the same time—well—who’s to blame them?

Savoring Family Time in a Uniquely New Hampshire Way

When families come together for the holidays, there is nothing better than having several generations come together to make new memories. Looking at photos, cooking a meal together and playing board games are great ways to connect and have fun. After a while, though, young children get restless and need an opportunity to explore and move around. That’s where the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire comes in. Located in the heart of downtown Dover, just two blocks from Jewelry Creations, the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire is a top destination for families seeking quality time that all will enjoy. The museum’s two floors of interactive exhibits offer plenty to do for children of all ages, from crawling babies to inquisitive middle-schoolers. But the best-kept secret is that parents and grandparents often have the most fun of all, seeing kids learning and making connections in a confident, joyful way. Children love to board the Yellow Submarine to take the helm or operated the periscope. Around the corner, they can create flying structures and launch them off one of the 30-foot towers. In the Dino Dig area, families can dig for dinosaur bones and learn more about their favorite giant extinct creatures. The World Cultures area has masks and instruments from different lands to try out and a popular pretend café. Nature lovers will enjoy climbing up into the big osprey nest overlooking the Cocheco River, and future engineers can create drive trains and learn to work looms. There is also a game controlled by brainwaves, a cave to explore, a palace throne room and more. All of the exhibits were developed by museum staff members and created in partnership with New Hampshire artisans and builders, offering a unique experience for even seasoned museum-going families. The bright and airy space also includes two classrooms for early learning and special performances, a well-stocked Museum Gift Shop, a 1950s-style diner for taking a snack break, and a two-story Studio that offers different art and science activities each day.

Open year-round, the Children’s Museum hosts a full schedule of classes, family workshops, holiday events, live performances and book character visits. One of the perennial favorites is the Family New Year’s Eve Celebration, a daytime New Year’s Eve party on December 31 from 10 am–3 pm. A glittering ball drop happens inside the museum at three different times, and everyone counts down the last seconds as confetti flies, “Auld Lang Syne” plays, and ginger ale is served to all. It’s a great way to get the New Year off to a positive start! The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire welcomes more than 90,000 visitors each year from all 50 states and beyond. Many families take advantage of the museum’s membership programs that grant free access all year round for a low one-time fee of $125 or less. The Clubhouse Membership includes free and reducedprice admission to hundreds of children’s museums and science centers nationwide. These memberships make great holiday gifts that will be used all year-long to make even more memories.

www.lxmagazines.com


Berry Behrendt, born in Hamburg, Germany, started his career as a photographer after touring and recording as a musician in Europe for several years. His distinctive style won him considerable demand quite quickly. In short order, Behrendt received assignments to shoot fashion and beauty spreads for a number of well-known European and American magazines, including German Vogue, Soma, Vibe, Essence and Sunday Telegraph Magazine. Behrendt has also produced images of musical artists such as Missy Elliott, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Moby, Busta Rhymes and Bootsy Collins. While he maintains a Hamburg office, Behrendt has also lived and worked in New York City since 2001. To learn more about the man, his work and what happens behind the lens of Berry Behrendt, we commissioned him to shoot this series of photographs so we could discuss them with him in detail.

Fashion inspires me, sure, but it’s really more about the personality of the model, which I choose based on the assignment. - Berry Behrendt

LX Magazine: Clearly you were going after an Audrey Hepburn theme with this shoot; please describe the process you went through to create these images. Berry Behrendt: As soon as I learned what we were trying to accomplish, the film Breakfast At Tiffany’s popped into my head and became our theme. With the Hepburn theme, we had a terrific head start because explaining to the stylist, makeup artist and hair stylist what we were going after was very easy. Everybody in fashion knows Audrey Hepburn, so we were off and running in pretty short order. LX: What did you see in this particular model that made her right for the shoot? BB: I met Rachele on another shoot I was doing and thought of her right away when this project came up. She has an outgoing personality that works particularly well for what we were going after. She’s very friendly and very lively. Even before this assignment, I had already seen an Audrey Hepburn-esque quality in her. Rachele really made the shoot. In fact I conceived the project with her in mind, so the shoot just sort of evolved around her. LX: What is the foundation of your photographic approach? BB: Fashion inspires me, sure, but it’s really more about the personality of the model, which I choose based on the assignment. My approach is also driven by the theme. You have to make sense of the clothing first, or the jewelry or whatever it is you’re featuring. Beyond that, you just have to impart a particular feel to the images. My overriding goal is to always try to do something interesting with the person I’m shooting. Ultimately, my work is driven more by the person in the image. LX: These photographs have a very definite look and feel to them, even if I didn’t know you shot them all, I would know they were all shot by the same photographer. In other words, you have a clearly identifiable style. How did you develop it? 22

BB: Thanks for saying that. Honestly, I’m actually always debating with myself if I truly have a style. These days, there are so many photographers out there; it’s difficult to stand out. One of the things that concerns me these days is for so many photographers out there now, their work all looks the same. It’s almost as if photographers are becoming somewhat interchangeable to a degree. I’m not saying I’m any better than anyone else, but I really try to make my work look different somehow. Having been doing this for more than 20 years now, I have learned in most cases the style is dictated by the client. Of course, I like to think the nature of the look I achieve is why my clients come to me. That said, you must have a variety of ways to get there. The main thing is I do what I do, and I make sure I like what I do. Typically, if I like it, others do too, and this seems to work consistently for me. Most of all though, I try to have a believable relationship with the model—and see that relationship conveyed in the finished photographs.

LX: What’s your background? Did you study photography formally? How did you decide to become a professional photographer? BB: Actually, no, I didn’t study photography formally. I was a working musician for a while and started in photography as an assistant for an established photographer to supplement my income. In doing so, I learned enough to take on small assignments on my own. After a couple of years of doing this, people started seeing my work and asking me if I could shoot things for them. Truthfully, photography just sort of evolved into my career. LX: Coming up, who were some of the photographers you admired? How did their work influence yours? BB: Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn and many of the other classic photographers have informed my approach. This particular shoot was definitely inspired by Avedon’s work with Audrey Hepburn. There are a number of young contemporary photographers I enjoy as well. And while their work is completely different from mine, I still find inspiration in what they are doing. LX: What was your first professional assignment? BB: My first assignment was for the photographer for whom I was assisting. It actually came about by happenstance. He was off skiing in the Swiss Alps when this big catalog shoot came in. He couldn’t get back in time, so I had to shoot it for him. Doing that shoot forced me to take responsibility for producing images for the first time. From doing this, I learned I could take the responsibility—I could actually execute a shoot. When you’re the photographer, it’s your responsibility to make sure everyone on the set is instilled with the confidence the work will turn out well. That shoot was my baptism by fire so to speak. LX: Describe your dream assignment. BB: Honestly, every assignment I get is a dream assignment these days. I really love to work. A client who respects what you do and is happy with the pictures you make is the absolute best. This, for me, is a dream assignment. I also like photographing interesting people from a variety of fields; musicians, politicians, actors—fascinating people I’d like to get to know. I suppose that qualifies too. More than anything else though, I really like what I do, so any chance I get to do it is a dream come true.

A Tradition of Brilliance

By Lyndon Conrad Bell

In September of 1963, the world got its first glimpse of what would become the most successful sports car the planet has ever known. Over seven generations of steady development, the Porsche 911 has continually evolved in a manner in which there can be a straight line drawn between the first Porsche Type 901 show car and today’s Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Model grand touring/sports car.

28

www.lxmagazines.com


When the 911 was initially shown at the 1963 Frankfurt Auto Show, it was called the Porsche Type 901. The people running the French car company Peugeot objected, declaring their company had established the rights to use three-number model designations with a zero in the middle. Rather than get caught up in a prolonged legal battle, Porsche replaced the zero with a one. When the car went on sale in 1964, it was billed as the Porsche 911. Porsche has applied the principle of continuous evolution to the 911. In other words, rather than remaking the car from scratch every five to seven years, Porsche works to improve some aspect of the car every year, altering its aspects only to improve the performance of the model. As a result, the overall mechanical layout of the Porsche 911 is essentially the same as it was on that first Type 901 introduced in 1963. Further, the profile of today’s car mimics the original car’s almost perfectly. In fact, the shape has become so iconic, it is immediately recognizable as a Porsche 911—whether you’re looking at the 1963 car, the 1983 car, the 2003 car or today’s 2013 car. Interestingly though, the 911 is actually an evolution of an even older model, the Porsche 356, which was introduced in 1948. Although truthfully, if you want to go all the way back, both of those cars owe their powertrain layout and overall shape to the Volkswagen Type 1 originated by Dr. Ing. Ferdinand Porsche—the namesake of the company and one of the most prolific automotive engineers of all time. www.lxmagazines.com www.lxmagazine.com

29


For the record, it is POR-sha—not “PORSH”.

Porsche is credited with creating the first gasoline electric hybrid automobile; one of the earliest purely electric automobiles; the Volkswagen Beetle; and the Mercedes-Benz SS/SSK range of automobiles—in addition to some of the most formidable racing cars of his time. As remarkable as all of that is, his crowning achievement—the one towering over all of the others— is the creation of the Porsche sports cars. Except…Ferdinand Porsche didn’t do the 356, nor did he do the 911. Porsche’s son, Ferry, did the 356 based on the rear-engine/rear-drive Volkswagen Type 1 (also known as the Volkswagen Beetle) his father created to fulfill Adolf Hitler’s desire for an affordable automobile for the German people. So, while we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Porsche 911 this year, the truth

30

of the matter is the car’s lineage goes all the way back to 1931. Development of the actual 911 started in 1956, under the direction of Ferry Porsche. The other people key to the development of the car were Porsche’s automotive stylist son, Butzi Porsche, body engineer, Edwin Komenda and powertrain engineers, Hans Tomala and Ferry’s nephew, Ferdinand Piech—who joined the project in its latter stages to do some finishing work on the engine. Where the 356 used a swing arm rear suspension and a horizontally opposed air-cooled four-cylinder engine mounted behind the passenger compartment, it was decided the 911 would use an independent rear suspension setup to improve handling. For more power, the new car would employ a horizontally opposed air-cooled sixcylinder engine.

From its original displacement of 2.0-liters and 130 horsepower, the 911’s engine has grown to as much as 3.8-liters. Further, it now employs liquid cooling and has produced over 400 horsepower in production applications. Turbocharged racing versions have produced in excess of 1000 horsepower. As much a trademark of the car as the Porsche badge on its nose, the aural signature of the 911’s flat-six engine is uniquely distinctive. It can be argued quite successfully the Porsche 911 is more than a grand touring/sports car. It is an icon around which a cult-like following has developed. The people who love the 911 are so fanatic about the model they will literally spend hours arguing with other people about the correct pronunciation of the company’s name. For the record, it is POR-sha—not “PORSH”.

www.lxmagazines.com


Much has been written and discussed about the secret of the success of the Porsche 911. To date, in excess of 300 books have been produced about the car. Further, new tomes are published each and every year. The car has been examined from every conceivable angle. However, the answer to the question of the success of the 911 is actually very simple. The Porsche 911 is unique in the automotive world. Like no other automobile, it seamlessly combines opposites. With a 911 you get sportiness and everyday usability, tradition and innovation, exclusivity and social acceptability, design and functionality. Since 1963, some 820,000 copies of the model have been built over seven generations. More than just the most successful sports car in the world, the Porsche 911 is also the most successful sports racing car human beings have ever known. In addition to competing on racetracks, the 911 has also been modified for rallying purposes and proven quite successful in that area of motorsport as well. Ferry Porsche described the exceptional versatility of his masterpiece quite succinctly when he said; “The 911 is the only car you can drive from an African safari to Le Mans, then to the theatre, and onto the streets of New York.” Thanks to its continuous evolution, the Porsche 911 comes just about as close to perfection as any car will ever get. With that said, the next one will be even better, and the one following it will be even better still. What we have in the 2013 Porsche 911 is the culmination of everything the world’s most successful sports car company has ever learned about building cars—all contained in one model.

There is nothing like holiday recipes, those that stay nestled in recipe boxes or in cookbooks reserved for that special time of the year. When bar professional, Tony Abou-Ganim was selected to create the cocktail program at the Bellagio Las Vegas in 1998, he made sure to include something unique to commemorate the holidays—Hot Buttered Rum. “I wanted to create a signature holiday drink that would be served every year at every bar and with luck it would become a Bellagio holiday tradition," said Abou-Ganim. “I feel creating special traditions are a huge part of properly celebrating the holidays.” Abou-Ganim, whose accomplishments include, but not limited to: author of The Modern Mixologist: Contemporary Classic Cocktails among other titles, three time winner of Iron Chef America and one of two Americans to win the Bacardi Martini World Grand Prix.

Hot Buttered Rum Serves 10 to 12

Batter ingredients: 1 pound light brown sugar 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 to 2 teaspoons allspice Freshly grated nutmeg 2 teaspoons vanilla extract Each drink: 1 – ½ ounce rum, preferably Mount Gay Eclipse Boiling water, as needed

32

Beat together the brown sugar, butter, spices and vanilla extract until well combined. Refrigerate in an airtight, resealable container until ready to use. When ready to prepare drinks, combine two heaping tablespoons of the batter and rum in a warmed coffee mug. Add boiling water, fill to the top and mix well. Serve with a spoon. Notes: Must be served steaming hot, not lukewarm. For a non-alcoholic option, omit rum. It is best to make the batter in advance so the spices have an opportunity to mingle. Be sure to remove the batter from the refrigerator at least six hours before serving to allow it to soften. Batter may be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 month or frozen for up to 2 months.

Maple Flan Serves 8

Ingredients: 3 cups heavy cream, at room temperature ¼ teaspoon kosher salt 1 vanilla bean, split 2/3 cup sugar 1 cup maple syrup, preferably Grade B earl amber 7 extra large egg yolks, room temperature

Hedy Goldsmith, who among her many accolades, is a 2012 and 2013 James Beard Award Finalist for Outstanding Pastry Chef, author of Baking Out Loud: Fun Desserts with Big Flavors and guest on Iron Chef America. She loves adding an element of surprise to her holiday desserts.

In a large saucepan, bring the maple syrup to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the syrup is reduced to ¾ cup. Keep an eye on the pot; reduce the heat if the syrup threatens to boil over.

“I love creating non-traditional, unexpected holiday desserts. Maple Flan is a great one that can be made well in advance. It’s flavor-forward and plays beautifully in the sandbox with figs, apples, pears, grapes, chestnuts and chocolate,” Goldsmith says.

Slide the pan of cream off the heat, fish out the vanilla beans and slowly add the cream to the caramel whisking until blended.

Position an oven rack in the center of the oven, and preheat the oven to 300 degrees. In a medium saucepan, combine the heavy cream and salt. Scrape all the seeds from the vanilla bean and add to the saucepan along with the bean. Cook over medium heat until just simmering, about 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes. Arrange eight, 6-ounce ramekins in a baking dish that has 2-inch high sides. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and 3 tablespoons of water and cook over low height, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved and the liquid is clear. Increase the heat to medium high and boil without stirring, 3 - 5 minutes, or until the sugar begins to turn golden brown. Gently swirl the pan over the heat to even out the color and cook for 2 - 3 minutes longer or until the sugar turns deep amber. Carefully and quickly pour the liquid evenly into the ramekins, swirling each one to cover the bottom completely.

34

In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks until blended. While whisking constantly, slowly pour the warm maple mixture into the egg yolks until blended. Pour the custard through a fine mesh strainer into a clean bowl. Pour the custard into the prepared ramekins in their baking pan. Put the baking pan into the oven, and carefully fill it with very hot water halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Tightly cover the pan with foil and bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until the center of the custard jiggles slightly when the ramekin is shaken. Carefully transfer the baking pan to a wire rack, uncover the pan and let the flans cool completely at room temperature. Remove the ramekins from the water bath and cover them with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or up to 2 days. To serve, run a thin knife around the edge of the custards and invert them onto small serving plates.

Moments in Time on Luxury Piano All photos courtesty of Piano Solutions XXI

When Guennadi “Gene” Korolev established Piano Solutions XXI, he had a new vision for piano restoration. He wanted to build a “one-man shop” and be able to restore a piano from start to finish. Gene dedicated his whole life to perfecting the restoration process and now has the most innovative and technologically advanced shop in the industry. In February of 2012, Gene, along with his daughter Katherine Banyasz, began working together on a custom piano project — dubbed “New York Serenade” — featuring the most advanced technology and use of new materials on a piano. While Gene used his scientific background and great knowledge in piano technology, Katherine provided her creative input and knowledge in arts and design. www.lxmagazines.com

The New York Serenade is adorned with 164,000 cubic zirconia stones; with every stone inserted by hand into the piano case.


They selected Steinway and Sons unique model A-III for this challenging custom piano project. As a tribute to the Swing years in America, the artistic inspiration for New York Serenade, according to Katherine, came from the periods of the 1920's to the 1940's, when the Art Deco movement and the Swing era of jazz and big bands flourished in New York City. This custom piano is adorned with 164,000 cubic zirconia stones that sparkle with various intensity, showcasing nostalgic imagery of New York City’s familiar places like Grand Central Station, The Cotton Club, Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park and of course Steinway Hall. The lid shows the New York Skyline and a magical moon shining over the Hudson River. The designs continue thoughout the piano with overlapping images. The mystical floral-like patterns bring together images to one magnifying effect.

The soundtrack also transmits wireless on a home theatre system or highresolution sound system that enables this piano to produce the effect of a full symphony orchestra or a live jazz band entertaining. One of the most important innovations in this piano design is a trapwork made from aircraft aluminum with ballbearings in rotating points of the moving mechanism. The friction and durability of this trapwork surpasses any existing trapwork on the market today. New York Serenade is a piano made for someone with great taste for luxury, art and design. A piano that will serenade you and take you to a new world of music and elegance.

Every stone was inserted by hand into the piano case, and took the fatherdaughter duo 16 months to put into place. In addition, this piano also comes with seamless installation for Live-Performance Model LX, a high resolution sound reproducing system, with sustain and shift proportional operating pedals. A completely wireless operation with using an iPad.

Documenting Genius Architectural Photographer Pedro E. Guerrero By Lyndon Conrad Bell

Faced with the prospects of a future career as a bilingual clerk at a department store or a carryout boy at a supermarket, 20-year old Pedro Guerrero left his childhood home in Mesa, Arizona to learn a craft at which he would be accepted for who he was, rather than what he looked like. His quest took him to Los Angeles, where he enrolled in the Art Center College of Design. Fate has a way of leading us to our destinies, and for young Pedro, fate chose the path of photographer. Without a hint the field would become a passion for him, Guerrero enrolled in photography classes there, largely because he had no experience in any of the disciplines offered. Well, that and all the other classes were full. Guerrero says after exposing his first roll of film, developing it and printing his first image, he knew photography was what he’d be doing for the rest of his life.

ve uerrero Archi © Pedro E. G

Thanks to that realization, we have some of the most beautifully crafted and carefully detailed photographic images of some of the 20th century’s most gifted American architects— including Frank Lloyd Wright—but we’re getting ahead of ourselves.

In 1939, Frank Lloyd Wright hired 22-year-old Pedro Guerrero as his resident photographer, the start of a collaborative bond that would last until Wright’s death in 1959.

54

www.lxmagazines.com


Guerrero studied photography at the Art Center; however by his own admission, he was in all probability, the worst student the school ever had. The Art Center College of Design was geared for commercial artists, and while Guerrero ultimately became quite celebrated for his commercial work, he was more intrigued by art photography. In fact, an administrator at the school once told him that even though Guerrero had come there to learn, he was defying the school to teach him. Whether Guerrero was already aware of his own path, a rebellious individual, or a combination of the two is difficult to say. But ultimately, he became disillusioned with the school. After studying there for only two years, Guerrero returned to his home in Arizona. Still working with his cameras, but moping around the family home, Guerrero’s father—who had been following the career of Frank Lloyd Wright—suggested young Pedro go to see Wright and inquire as to his needs for photographic services. Guerrero knew very little about Wright, other than the fact he was an architect. Further, Guerrero knew very little about architecture. He had seen a photograph of Wright, and he had also seen a photograph of Wright’s Pennsylvania house, “Fallingwater”. But other than that, he really didn’t know much about the man. This, as it turned out, was quite fortunate.

© Pedro E. Guerrero Archive Guerrero photographed Mr. Wright taking a tea break at his exhibition Sixty Years of Living Architecture in New York City in 1953.

Guerrero said if he’d had an inkling of how accomplished Wright really was, he would have been embarrassed to go see him. So it was a highly inexperienced and wholly unaccomplished 22-year old Pedro Guerrero introduced himself to Frank Lloyd Wright—one of America’s most revered architects—as a photographer. Which, by the way was the first time he’d ever introduced himself that way in his life. However, it wouldn’t be the last. With an extremely thin portfolio—but excellent timing— Guerrero was invited to come in and show Wright what he could do. By his own admission, Guerrero had the world’s worst portfolio. The school had tried to train Guerrero to be a commercial artist, but he had focused on fine art instead. Because of this, his portfolio contained such jewels as an image of a girl and a dog, as well as a dead pelican on the beach with a beer can. Fortunately though, Guerrero had also done quite a bit of artistic female nude work, which intrigued Wright. The two developed a rapport and within 15 minutes Wright had invited Guerrero to start work—that very day. What Guerrero didn’t know at the time was Wright’s previous photographer had just eloped with one of the apprentices, leaving Wright without photographic services.

With a charge to photograph everything he saw on the site, because everything there was important to Wright, Guerrero was hired as Frank Lloyd Wright’s photographer. An almost unbelievable situation, Guerrero’s good fortune really demonstrates the extreme value of timeliness—as well as being willing to work for very little money. 55


Guerrero said Wright told him the pay wasn’t much, but he could live at Taliesin West and use Wright’s camera. Guerrero later found out the pay wasn’t anything, but he said it didn’t matter—after all, look where he was. Working for Wright was the equivalent of getting a postgraduate degree in commercial photography. Interestingly though, the direction Wright gave Guerrero was very minimal. All he told Guerrero was he wanted to recognize the work as his own. Wright eschewed bird’s eye views, worm’s eye views, and abstract views. He wanted to see the work the way he drew it. Given Wright drew from a sitting position, this meant Guerrero shot from eye level more often than not. Further, as much as possible, he shot Wright’s designs in their entirety because Wright wanted to see as much of the architecture as possible in one shot.

After Mr. Wright’s death, Architectural Forum assigned Guerrero to photograph the house in Bethesda, Maryland, he had designed for his son, Robert, in 1953. © Pedro E. Guerrero Archive

Fortunately, this nicely dovetailed with Guerrero’s vision, so he found Wright quite easy to please. For Guerrero, the buildings were essentially large sculptures and he photographed them on that basis.

© Pedro E. Guerrero Archive Shot in 1947 for a House and Garden feature, this photograph never appeared because Mr. Wright did not have enough other postwar work to show.

When World War II started, Guerrero served as a photographer for the Army Air Corps. Upon returning, he resumed his work with Wright. However, his photography had by then also attracted the attention of a number of other architects—as well as fine artists. Sculptors Louise Nevelson and Alexander Calder commissioned Guerrero to document their works, as did architects Philip Johnson and Marcel Breuer. Still, out of loyalty to the man who gave him his first break, Guerrero avoided working for a lot of different architects until after Wright died in 1959. A number of prominent magazines also gave Guerrero assignments based on his work with Wright. These included Architectural Forum and Harper’s Bazaar, as well as House and Garden. He also authored a number of books—among them; Picturing Wright: An Album from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Photographer and Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey.

In 1962, Guerrero traveled to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to photograph the functional kitchen of the fabled Julia Child.

Bill Dube Ford Toyota Scion

A family tradition for children and community by Jessica Banis of Creative Resources Group

Bill Dube Ford Toyota of Dover, New Hampshire is a local business built on a foundation of family values and charitable giving. Now celebrating almost 40 years in business, President Debbie Dube Reed remains committed to the community that she feels has provided her with so much. Debbie Reed’s father and New Hampshire native Bill Dube began his automotive career in 1975 when he purchased a Toyota dealership, adding a Ford franchise just five years later. Debbie joined the family business in 1988. “Those early years were challenging for both Ford and Toyota,” she reflects. “But my father had faith, and it paid off. Today we’re proud to offer two of the best brands in the industry.” As soon as they opened the doors to their dealership, the Dube family immersed themselves in community service. Bill Dube was greatly involved in and served as chairperson for the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce. Debbie followed in his footsteps, also serving as chairperson, and participating in many local causes. “My father believed that business is all about helping others,” she says. “Whether we’re helping our customers into a new car or helping our neighbors in the community. That’s part of his legacy and I’m proud to keep building on that.” Soon after joining the business, Debbie met the man who would later become her husband, Charlie Reed, who was her dealer representative at Ford Motor Co. in Detroit. Debbie laughs as she tells the story. “I always joke that he had his pick of the dealers’ daughters…but I think he made the right choice,” she says as the two of them share a smile. They married in 1998. Today, Charlie is a part of the team at Bill Dube Ford Toyota. He and Debbie live in the New Hampshire Seacoast region and have two daughters, Brayden, age 10 and Abigail, age 12. Together, the family takes pride in supporting local organizations and charities. “In building my own family, I think often of the needs of children,” says Debbie. “Especially children in our community, our neighborhood.”


Bill Dube Ford Toyota has given generously to the Dover Children’s Home and Children’s Museum. At the dealership, Reed also helped to set up a job-shadowing program for Dover High School students. Twice a year, kids would come and spend the day with employees, learning all about the automotive industry and the sales process. In support of the health of the community, Reed also served on the board of d irectors at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital and Health Foundation in Dover from 2004 to 2012. Over the years, her hard work and fundraising efforts were instrumental to programs such as the Seacoast Cancer Center, Pediatric Regional Institute for Specialty Medicine (PRISM), and Pete’s Place, a grief support center for children coping with the loss of a loved one. “I’m really proud to have helped bring more health services here, close to home,” she says. “My daughter Abigail had a problem with her hips at birth and for the first months of her life we were constantly going back and forth to Boston… it was overwhelming. Having local resources can relieve a lot of stress for both parents and kids.”

“In building my own family, I think often of the needs of children,” says Debbie. “Especially children in our community, our neighborhood.” Youth and collegiate sports have also always been of particular interest to the Reed family, as both of their daughters play soccer. Bill Dube Ford Toyota sponsored University of New Hampshire athletics and the UNH Wildcats hockey team for many years. Currently, Reed is proud to support the Dover Soccer Association, Seacoast United Sports, and community football teams around the region. As a Toyota dealer, Reed has the added benefit of a corporate matching program. For every donation the dealership makes, Toyota will match it, 100%, from $2,500 up to $10,000. “The matching program is huge for us,” says Reed. “We’re a smaller store, but thanks to Toyota, we can do some really big things for our community. Things that may not have been possible otherwise.” And this holiday season, Bill Dube Ford Toyota is planning something big. Reed is combining her resources with those of her long time friends and fellow philanthropists and business owners Linda and Joey Hagan, of Jewelry Creations in Dover. Together, they have created an exciting charity event: Live, Love, Give. As part of the Live, Love, Give event, Hagan and Reed collaborated to create an ultimate Fantasy Gift Collection, including a $10,000 donation to charity, fine jewelry, a brand new Ford Mustang convertible, and more. For all the details, or to participate, visit LiveLoveGiveJC.com. For Reed, this latest endeavor is just part of her long-standing commitment to the community, and to helping those in need. “We live here, we work here…It’s our responsibility to give back,” she explains. “That’s what I learned from my father and that’s what I hope to pass on to my children.”
