Synopsis

Synopsis

Follow a photographer to Thailand as he documents the life of rice—from planting ceremony to eating—in a compelling narrative with vivid color images.

Rice is one of the most abundant and widely grown crops in the world today. In Thailand, rice is grown everywhere—and it is almost always a part of every meal. Photographer Richard Sobol invites us on a journey to Thailand to explore the life of rice: from the beginning of the growing season at the Royal Plowing Ceremony, to the hard work of transplanting and harvesting the rice plants, and finally ending with a delicious dinner—of rice, of course! Illustrated with beautiful photographs of the farmers and rice fields of Thailand, this is a firsthand account of one of the world’s most valuable and important crops.
