"When we're little, our planet presents itself as a vast, amorphous, unknowable thing." So begins Rice and Revelation, Paul Ackerley's first book of photography and writing. It is, in a sense, his long overdue love letter to Southeast Asia, a part of the planet he has been seeking to know for quite some time now. The images and experiences herein span six countries, four visits and fourteen years.
Rice and Revelation is not a linear journal; it is a freestyle journey through color tone, time and theme, guided by pictures and words that are as accessible as they are personal.
