Atsue Durrant spent most of her career as an office worker, but she always felt like something was missing.

She was a multi-discipline artist and used photography as a form of self-expression. However, it wasn't until she quit her office job, with the support of her husband Cameron Durrant, that she was able to indulge her creative side by starting a farm in Mizuho, western Tokyo, just outside of the U.S. Yokota Air Base.

With a partner able to support and encourage her, Atsue felt she could finally spread her wings and try something new, and although she considered farming as a hobby, she says she now feels right at home with the work.
