The beauty of tobacco

Tobacco is still harvested in Balkan Countries such as Macedonia. It is an intricate process that as an American I took for granted. This image is a reflection of the months of labor that is poured into ensuring tobacco leaves are pristine for American distributors to then chemically process and sell throughout the United States.
