Haenyeo, Jeju's women of the sea

Haenyeo, Jeju's women of the sea

The women divers of Jeju Island (known as haenyeo) are unique and rare workers. For centuries, they have harvested seaweed and shellfish at depths of 20 meters, holding their breath for as long as two minutes without any equipment other than their rubber suits, masks and nets. The Korean women divers of Jeju Island have faced the tempestuous tides of history and struggle for economic survival.  Many of the haenyeo live a life of purpose and resilience well into their 90s.

Business As Usual • in Korea, there are female divers, otherwise known as haenyeo, who go out in full scuba gear in the cold waters off the coast to collect clams, abalone, seaweed, etc. as a means of living. Just another example of how the women, or as they say in Korean, ahjummas, of Korea are don't take bs/tough as nails/super strength human beings. Don't mess with ahjummas and their power~ #속초 #scubadiver #haenyeo #해녀 #sokcho #korea

Self-taught photographer Andy W Langton doesn’t do parachute photography when he travels — he professes he has to stay anywhere long enough to experience and soak up the people, places and atmos before he lets the photos roll. His photo series, The Last of the Mermaids, which had him following two haenyeo (‘diving women‘) from South Korea’s Jeju Island, is especially fascinating.
