About This Exhibition:
Jose first chanced upon the Haenyeo women when he decided to participate in an Ultra Trail Running Race in Jeju Island and was conducting research on the island. He was enthralled by the innate beauty of the Haenyeo women and how strongly they epitomised courage and perseverance.
Held from October to November 2017 at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, Haenyeo Singapore featured 1.8m high prints of Jose’s photography project on the Haenyeo Women Divers in Jeju Island, South Korea.
Results of Photography Exhibition
Jose was pleasantly surprised by the media’s reaction to his photography exhibition on the Haenyeo. Generating over SGD$500,000 worth of PR value in both print and online media, up till today in 2019, publications like the Sirene Journal are still featuring his work on the Haenyeo Women in editorials.

More Haenyeo photographs and stories
Jose Jeuland set out to document these Haenyeo women who have dedicated their lives to this craft. “ In every photograph that I shoot, I try to encapsulate the essence of the Haenyeo. Some of the Haenyeo are portrayed in monotone to help the audience feel emotions similar to what the Haenyeo often go through. Through these photographs, I want to help the audience experience and appreciate these women for they are the last generation of the Haenyeo “, Jose Jeuland shared.
