Haenyeo, Women Divers Of The Sea

Jeju Island, South Korea

Exploring the rich tradition of the Haenyeo, or female divers, from Jeju Island, South Korea, Jose Jeuland embarked on a journey to document their remarkable way of life. Originating from the 5th century, the Haenyeo have been diving into the depths of the ocean without proper equipment, relying only on lead-weighted vests and goggles to catch fresh seafood.

Through his photography project, Jose aims to capture the essence of the Haenyeo, portraying their dedication, grit, and resilience in the face of adversity. The series features powerful imagery of their weathered faces framed by goggles, serving as a poignant tribute to their enduring spirit and the fading traditions they represent. Jose’s work on the Haenyeo has garnered widespread recognition, being featured in various media outlets, both online and in print.

Longevity Okinawa, Japan – Centenarian’s Secrets

Okinawa, Japan

Inspired by an article he read 12 years prior about the health and longevity of Okinawans, Jose was drawn to uncover the secrets behind their extended lifespans. Unlike his usual photography style, this documentary project focused on capturing portraits and images of hands that narrate the passage of time, presented in both monochrome and color. Each portrait, meticulously directed by Jose, serves as a window into the unique stories of the centenarians. Alongside the still images, a video reel showcased the life and landscapes of Okinawa, featuring interviews with the centenarians themselves, providing further insight into their attitudes and experiences.
