Photographer's Note

A local in the small town of Haemi, in rural South Korea, begins harvesting the rice with a machete. In the old days they would do the whole field like this, with many young men employed. These days, however, they just cut away enough to allow the rice harvesting truck/machine to get into the field, and the task is done in hours with minimal labour.
