Photograph of the week: Rice farmers at work

 

During September of 2011 Jon Raho took a trip to Lombok, Indonesia after hearing all the great talks about it being a must-see destination, and in fact was stunned by its beauty upon arrival. His itinerary was long and filled with great stops and trips including a walk through the rice fields, as well as visiting the local farmers to see how they got about on their day to day activities. Just as Jon began to head off, he heard a brushy banging sound that really caught his attention. Three farmers began beating the rice to detach the grains from the stems; Jon took a few shots while they worked and this was his favourite of the set. All three of them have their unique expression though he thinks the one in the centre was a bit camera shy!

Thank you to Jon Raho Studios for permission to re-produce the image.
