Officially titled “Eating rice, China” (and originally captioned “Chinaman eating rice”), the picture is one of originally 143 photographs collated by famed sinologist Berthold Laufer who, in 1904, returned from a landmark three year trip to the Orient with about 7,500 objects intended to showcase the day to day life of the average Chinese citizens at the time.
Man, that is a long time to sit for a picture.
I hope someday to be as happy as this dude eating his rice.
