Alex Kornhuber has been working on three different projects simultaneously. The first is a book and exhibition about the work and influence of the Swiss architect Theodor Cron on the modernist movement in Lima in the 1940's, 50's and 60's. The second is a book about Pisco (Peru's grape brandy) as an element of Peruvian identity. For 8 years Alex has been traveling along Peru's southern coast in search of Pisco makers in times of harvest and production of Pisco. For the third project Alex has been editing 14 years of photographic work in search of a poetic photo essay about what it is to be Peruvian in the three geographical regions; desert coast, mountain Andes and jungle.
