Tobacco Farmer in Cuba

This man has been a tobacco farmer all of his life and is following in the footsteps of his father who was also a farmer before him. In his 70s he still harvests and farms tobacco while his sons take care of the cigar rolling. While he sits in his farming clothes rows of tobacco leaves dry behind him.
