Haruto Maeda's portfolio The Rice Field
"The existence of the rice field—the staff of life to the Japanese—has had an great effect on our scenery, culture and the sense of morality. However, due to the unplanned development forced upon many rural areas of Japan, the beauty and history of over 2000 years of rice harvesting is decreasing every year. Fearing the loss in a few years, I hurriedly began to photograph these areas. The scenery is silent, but the power of the photograph can touch people's mind and make them recognize the importance of the cutural icon of the rice field."—Haruto Maeda

Perfectly lit and composed, these polaroids are Bitesnich's images in miniature, the painterly sketches for later works of art. Though as with most artists, the sketches ultimately become artworks in themselves."—the publisher
