18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Serbian Meat Shop

A winter break brings descendants of the Serbian diaspora community in Amador County together for fellowship and the making of traditional Serbian sausage in merriment and high spirits in a small, private shop in the Sierra Foothill town of Sutter Creek, California. Mitch Glavenich, left, runs the sausage stuffer as Roman Vukovich watches him. Dustin Armstrong coils a stuffed casing on the table as Mike Rice and Ace Begovich, both to his right, tie the ends of the sausages, which will soon be hung in the smoke house to add a smoky essence.
