THE WRITER - Mas Masumoto holds a portrait of his grandparents, who first tilled the soil on the family farm. Masumoto is a man of words, the literary type. His first book, "Epitaph for a Peach: Four Seasons on My Family Farm", received widespread critical acclaim.

Mas is a quiet man, with an easy grace, who speaks as eloquently as he writes. We did this photo after spending the afternoon walking among his peach trees in a cool spring rain. This picture was used as the opener of his latest book "Harvest Son".
