                                               THE SEA WOMEN OF SOUTH KOREA
For more than 1,700 years, haenyeo have been diving in the
sea, harvesting shellfish and seaweed.  In the Korean province
of Jeju, sea women dive up to ten meters holding their breath
for over two minutes, with no breathing equipment.  The
profession is practiced today by a majority of women in their
60s and older, who dive all year round, wearing old-fashioned 
headlight-shaped scuba masks. With  wrinkled faces and grey 
hair they are likely be the last generation of haenyeo. These
women have been often described as sea warriors, risking 
\their lives scouring the ocean floor. 

In my travels all over the world I have photographed hundreds of flowers.  If you are interested, please contact me.
