davidalanharvey Stinson cottage in fog this afternoon. I have been taking pictures of this cottage for years. Watched it ripped apart by a hurricane and watched it rebuilt. Put a picture of it in NatGeo. The Stinsons are a terrific family. This is their summer cottage. So for now sits alone and empty in a winter fog. Summer will find us all again just hanging out. #outerbanks #nags head 2d

  •   davidalanharvey @danieljhoffman Not at all Daniel. I simply elaborated. I met Frank for the first time a few weeks ago. Go back not too far in my Instagram thread and you will see him. I shoot all the time yet few photographers do. Mr Frank went long periods not shooting at all. All are different in how they use the medium. What counts is not their methods but their final selected results. Thanx for your thoughtful comments 3d

davidalanharvey Changing planes JFK. Random walk through. Like every other photographer bored at the airport we shoot whatever is around. I am anxious to get home today after an incredibly rewarding month in Korea. Already missing my Korean diet and friends. Mostly I am trying to remember where I parked my truck at my home airport. Can't find the keys either. All my travel experience doesn't seem to do me much good!! 5d

davidalanharvey I had the pleasure of lunch today with Korean novelist, poet, and professor of literature Kil-Un Hyun. Mr. Hyun is doing the text for my upcoming book on the Haenyeo of Jeju Island where he was born and lived for 46 years. Hyun was kind enough to come by and look at my photographs today in Seoul to get a feel for what he may write. I am honored. #SouthKorea #Haenyeo #Jeju 7d

davidalanharvey My photographing in Korea is over. I want to give very special humble thank you to all the Haenyeo I came to admire for their resilience, free spirit, sense of humor, and warmth. These women divers showed me a whole new world. Bobbing around out there in the frigid Pacific on their little foam floats and then kicking down without oxygen tanks to pick up a few abalone off the ocean floor was simply something to witness. Most of these women have been doing this for 50 years or more. A tradition in its final years . Many thanks ladies. You are the bestest#Haenyeo #SouthKorea #Jeju 1w

davidalanharvey Harbor cat Jeju Island, #SouthKorea. Every harbor has one .. Or ten! I can't finish up this Korea essay without a cat shot. #Haenyeo #Jeju 1w

davidalanharvey No sooner had the group of Haenyeo I was diving with entered the water when one of them snatched an octopus from its hiding place under a rock. This bilaterally symmetric mollusk sure isn't the most beautiful creature on our planet, but at $25. per and the possibility of getting 5-10 in a day along with sea urchins and abalone literally puts food on the table for their families. The octopus is often in the shallow waters here on Jeju Island. I have eaten octopus every day here either steamed or boiled. Fresh seafood every day has me totally spoiled. #Jeju #SouthKorea #Haenyeo 1w
  •   kimi_swimmy I don't believe that we should discriminate against eating animals because they are cute, furry or smart. Yes octopus are intelligent and I'm sure these women have more connection/respect for them than anyone here commenting. Octopus are an extremely sustainable harvest. They have short lifespans and grow quickly and and are full of flavor and nutrition. Love this series! @davidalanharvey 4d
  •   pabo76 @hancg Not sure if you still on IG, but you should check out this photographer's work. Its awesome, particularly his recent work in Korea. 3d
  •   hancg @pabo76 Thanks. Agree, his work is awesome! 3d
  •   stefano_klein I love that 2d

davidalanharvey Women shellfish divers do last minute prep on a rocky ledge just before entering the frigid waters on Jeju Island, S Korea. I went in first so I could see things from their view. I am a sandy beach guy and rocky water entries extremely difficult in strong currents. However, It's just another day for these 60-80 yr old women who have been doing this since their early teens.#Jeju #Haenyeo #SouthKorea 1w

davidalanharvey Kimnyeong village Jeju Island. A lone Haenyeo on her own waits for a boat to pick her up. I finish tomorrow my essay here in South Korea. This project on the women free divers is nothing but inspirational. I am in gratitude for their hospitality and warmth. In the background here are electric power windmills. Mixing tradition with a new age. Two more pictures to post here and I am done. All here on Instagram? Absolutely not. Just a preview to what I hope will be a nice book and tribute to these strong women. #SouthKorea #Haenyeo #Jeju 1w

davidalanharvey One swim fin kick and a Haenyeo heads for the bottom. I am now starting to get into the water with these women free divers. In water and underwater photography is not my thing, yet I just cannot finish this essay without a few symbolic water shots. So with a too tight wetsuit, mask, and fins down I will go into the rocky depths with the mother & daughter from yesterday's Instagram. I will use a scuba tank so I can stay down awhile and attempt what I generally leave for my underwater expert buddies at NatGeo to do. The ladies will be after octopus and abalone. I will mostly be in survival mode and trying to get a meaningful picture at the same time. That's often the photographers life. I know I am in good hands.#SouthKorea #Haenyeo #Jeju 2w

  •   davidalanharvey @thehwangbo It might be hard to make this a weekend shoot. They only dive on certain tides so the times vary. On extreme winds they don't go out at all. Each village has it's own mayor and you will need to meet and speak with that person for permission and to know when and if they are going out. To go with them jumping off a boat is very difficult.You could however get lucky and just happen to see them coming and going off a beach or coming in from a day on the boat and this you can probably shoot without permission IF you are super polite and discreet and not aggressive. The women by nature are very shy and photo averse without endorsement by their village leader. So as in many things of this nature it is a step by step process. OR extreme good fortune!! I hope you meet them. They are a joy. 7d
  •   thehwangbo @davidalanharvey thank you for the advice! I know a few locals and hopefully being Korean will help! 6d

davidalanharvey Mother and daughter free diving Haenyeo team. Kisoon Kim,65, gets an affectionate kiss from her daughter Kyungyok Kang, 35, who is by far the youngest Haenyeo I have come across. Mom has been diving for 50 years and daughter only 4. Kyungyok moved with her husband and 3 sons back to Jeju Island after living in Busan where she worked and was married. She came back to Jeju for a quieter simpler lifestyle to raise her sons and follow in her mother's steps. I will go in the water with these women when they resume diving in a few days. I think I will be in good hands. #SouthKorea #Haenyeo #Jeju 2w

davidalanharvey Early morning carrot pickers gather around a bonfire to take off the chill from high winds and rain.These are the same Haenyeo women divers who when taking a diving break become farmers. The rich volcanic soil grows incredible sweet carrots and potatoes. I wish I could stay on the organic diet I have here of fresh veggies and shellfish. #SouthKorea #Haenyeo 2w

davidalanharvey Jeju Island #SouthKorea. Tourism has come to Jeju in a big way in recent years with mostly Korean and Chinese tourists often mixing with the Haenyeo women shellfish divers. Here Taesoon Kung, 74, doesn't dive much anymore but will prepare you an amazing lunch of fresh out of the sea abalone , urchin and squid . A shot of soju to wash it down and I promise you a delight not equalled. Nope this is not a restaurant. Simply the Haenyeo hang spot. Not advertised nor promoted. You just gotta know. #Haenyeo 2w

davidalanharvey 84 year old Chunsong Kang came out of the water this afternoon after 5 hours of scrambling 15 feet under water in a free dive in strong currents searching for abalone along the often treacherous rocky Korean coast. Jeju Island, long known for #women #wind, and #stones, has an austere beauty of landscape and people. 2w
