Photographer's Note

It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

- from the song “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”


He’s the elder brother of the boy in the workshop (an earlier post).

Both of them help their father in maintaining their ricefields. The sack he’s carrying here weighs around 60 kg/132 lbs and contains fertilizers to be scattered into the fields.
Together, they as a family all share the workload.

Another photo (back view) of this boy is posted at the workshop.

I hesitated to post this photo at first as I wasn’t able to get the quality I wanted.
However, I really want to share the typical farmer’s way of life here in the Philippines, so here it is.
