The Lilies Harvest collection features a set of photos of the waterlily harvest season, which happens during the annual flooding of the Mekong Delta from around August through to November.


As it turns out, the lilies manage to grow and bloom on their own without any special care needed from the farmers who harvest them and bring them back to shore in traditional boats. The farmers sell the lilies for extra income to be used as food or home decoration.
