TOBACCOLAND - Harvest season life in Pinar del Rio - Cuba’s Westernmost province.
Excited that my project Tobaccoland is starting to see the light of day. It was shot over 2.5 weeks in Western Cuba. The farming community was so welcoming, and I’ll forever be indebted to the kind smiles and open doors from Ricardo, Ismelys, Bolo y Juana, Pepé y China, Lissette, and especially, Dear Roly and his family.
Though the project may take future turns and explorations, the introduction is over. Couldn’t have been done without the help of Katherine, who provided great help and time and sacrifice and understanding - thank you from the depths, my love.
