The innovative mezcalero puts his creativity to the forefront
Documenting the world of agave spirits has offered up many wonderful opportunities. The greatest thing for me is when producers I know from a quick brand shoot or interview become close friends. Maestro Mezcalero, Jose Santiago Lopez and his partners, paper maker Alberto Valenzuela and designer Edgar Gopar, are great examples of this experience. Whether it’s at Jose’s palenque, or just my house, we have spent many happy hours talking over the trials and tribulations of the mezcal market or just sipping one during a game of darts.
