Photographer's Note

The Haenyeo (women divers), some in their 80s, dive to collect seaweed, shellfish and other seafood in a unique way (Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO). It is still posible to see some of these sea mermaids 'at work' and learn all about their history and culture in Jeju island. In this picture I capture the Haenyeo's leg and the float for resting and for the catch net.
