IN RAPTURE at the sight of the weathered Thais and Hill Tribes people harvesting crops from the mountainsides yesterday, I vowed to spend today documenting all the elements of the process in pictures.

So standing there in a rain of corn husks the camera fired away in my hands.

The Proposition

THE premise is simple: Allow die roles to determine the majority of decisions faced while motorbiking throughout the world with a limited budget for an entire year.      It’s 365 days of tempting fate, enticing serendipity and letting go of free will – if such things exist at all.
