Autumn Rice

It took around six months to find the material for my first full portfolio in colour. This year, I was in Japan for the whole year. My regular morning bike ride took me through numerous paddy fields. I saw the fields being flooded black, then planted with sprouts of green. The green took off into taller plants and in late summer they gradually turned yellow. As the crop deepened to a rich gold, it became ready for the harvest. But storms created havoc. Witnessing the daily details of these changes was an invitation for my camera and for shooting in colour.
