I can tell you his total has gone up by two; he shot Ennis House yesterday, and I got to shoot alongside him at Hollyhock on Tuesday.

I do hope Andrew reaches out to homeowners prior to arriving with camera in hand....houses often can be "not ready for prime time": trash cans & recycling bins lying about, unwashed and or poorly styled cars blocking views in drives, patio furniture stacked in winter hibernation, wind blown leaves caught in corners, etc. (I'm speaking from personal experience) Also, I know there are some owners who may not necessarily want to participate.

That calls to mind the long ago Chat chap who photographed so many FLW houses. When he posted a photo of the driveway of the Cooke House where it joined the road, he received an angry response from the owners of the unseen house, and took the photo down immediately.

Arizona photographer is on a mission to shoot every Frank Lloyd Wright building

My guess is that Pat Mahoney has already accomplished this feat.

Roderick, that sounds like Peter Beers, doesn't it ? Never did one see so many photos of driveways---and nothing more. He clearly took owners' privacy to heart ...

I don't want to speak for Andrew, but I've worked with him on enough related projects to say that the whole process of negotiating with the sites to agree on a set shooting opportunity is the biggest part of the challenge. He's far enough into the project now that it carries it's own cachet, and that serves as leverage where needed (like getting to shoot SC Johnson, for example). But he _never_ just shows up unannounced with a camera ...

I had a friend and colleague in Fort Lauderdale, FL who, without fanfare or self-promotion, sought to visit and photograph all of Wright's extant works. It was his own deeply personal quest. Unfortunately and tragically cancer ended his ability to reach that goal on December 17, 2014. He almost made it though, shy a couple of dozen I believe. Donald F. Zimmer, AIA . . may he rest in peace.
