Fine Art Photography | Home Sweet Home.
We hardly see them. You might think they do not exist. They are as invisible. They live in wooden shelters or small houses, sometimes without walls or doors. We must walk the paths of the rice fields or along the rivers. They are somehow disconnected from the world. Some have made wishes of renunciation, others have no family, others are doing as well as they can. They often spend their lives working hard in the rice fields, back when there were no machines like today. They have worked for years but they have almost nothing, so they survive with odd jobs. Some fish, others make bamboo furniture, another recycles everything he finds. They will remain active until their last breath. They do not have the choice. But they have valuable values, such as willpower, hope, optimism, strength of character. They do not complain. They do what they have to do with dignity and humility.
