Rice Love Bags | Documentary Portrait Photos | India

The first time my Indian friend, Coney who is the co- founder of Rice Love shared their charity business idea to help low-income families, I was pretty impressed by the idea and accepted the offer to design bags for them.I designed two illustrations; one with heart shaped rice in hands with traditional Henna Tattoo, and other is an elephant with rice plants pattern on its body. Both designs are inspired by Indian culture and love towards rice.

After they officially launch the business, I was lucky enough to travel to India with the co-founders of Rice Love as a photographer, this time, to document events, people, and their lifestyle in India.

If you buy a Rice love bag, you will feed 1 kg of rice for families in need. How cool is that? Most of us want to help but don’t know how. That’s one way we can help people who live far away from us.

If we faith, all of our dream will come true. I remember when I learned about Taj Mahal at school, I wished to go to visit India to see it. I did not expect that my dream came true this early. Great love story. And all we need in love.
