Ronni Knabl collects historical craft tools from the mountain farmers in Tyrol, Austria. Have a look and visit his small museum high up in the mountains near Innsbruck. And try some of his fruit wines. They are amazing!

Antonio Hernández, Jigsaw artist, Ciudad Juarez

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAI meet Antonio Hernández at the Avenida Juarez in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The US border is just some blocks away. On a shady corner he installed his table. This is his office. He does not need much. Just a jigsaw, some rings and keys.
KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAWithin 10 minutes he writes names in their surfaces. Not with a pen but with a jigsaw. I never saw somebody doing that. “My father did this craft since 1933. He began at the same place in Ciudad Juarez.” Antonio recalls that he was 14 when his father showed him how to deal with that kind of material. For 2 year he was abroad: In Europe, where he showed his art in different museums in Dublin and Madrid.

I got a ring and a key. Special memories of Ciudad Juarez.
