Dive into the disappearing world of Haenyeo and experience one of Korea’s most celebrated traditions through the lens of Jose Jeuland, presented in both monochrome and colour at The Fullerton Hotel from 27 October to 22 November 2017.

The Haenyeo refers to the dying trade of female divers in Korea, and has been recognised by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage that needs to be cherished and safeguarded.

In the 1960’s, there were 30,000 of them diving off the shores of Jeju and Udo islands in South Korea daily. Now, they amount to 5,000, with two-thirds of them over the age of sixty.
