Shot in the village of Batad, Philippines Tetsu Ozawa

The man worked in a rice field

The man had been cultivating his field when I walked by. When I talked to him, he stopped working and started to talk to me. He seemed to have some reasons to talk. And he told what he thought.

According to him, rice was able to be harvested at least two times a year. Nevertheless, he felt grief over that young people went to an urban area because they didn't like the livelihood of the village. I thought the tourism industry could change the situation.
