Photographer's Note

Rice harvesting is still carried out entirely by hand in some part of the country. This is along the Hanoi-Haiphong highway. The weather is damp and warm so the rice needs to be cut and later dried before storage. Vietnam is the second largest exporter of rice following Thailand apparently. It is a huge but sustainable crop. In the north as shown here there are two crops per year, and in the south with longer season, they can produce three crops per year from the same fields.
