Thinking outside the box



When I'm on the road in another country, I'm always looking for iconic images that tell a story about the place. Sure, we can take pictures of a museum, or a temple, or workers in a rice field. But what if you can tell the story without being so literal?


In this case, while walking down a small road in Bali, I saw the opportunity to say something about the agrarian culture, and give a feel for the architecture of the island as well. By shooting the reflection in the rice field, I was able to flatten the image and make it both graphic, and very two dimensional.
