FFF project

CPCD sent me on a scavenger hunt like mission to illustrate a new project that is still in the development stages. It is a project that will valorize local products and stimulate the local economy. I photographed things like leather, cotton, and tobaco. Tobaco was difficult to find. I ended up going from farm to farm in a rural area nearby..."I dont have tabaco but I know somebody who used to have a few plants...." On my way trampled through a field of sugar cane, saw a chicken attacked by a fox, and contracted another bout of lice...but eventually found a baby tobaco plant behind an old farm house between a mango tree and a chicken pen.
