Photographer's Note

Although Tana Toraja is probably best known and visited for its elaborate, some may say rather macabre funerals. It also boasts another attraction, the spectacularly beautiful countryside, where the wide, unpolluted skies are reflected in the endless, glistening rice paddies. In Torajan culture, rice is very important. You can watch people busy in the fields, engrossed in the timeless cycle of ploughing, planting, harvesting and drying it, before storing it in rice-barns.

At the end of another days work it the field its time to take the buffaloes home.
