The Last Japanese Mermaids 

For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.

In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence

It was a great pleasure to work with this sister. Her and her brother gave me a souvenir which was a traditional Moroccan dish known as tajine. It was the actual dish that houses the food. When she gave it to me and explained it’s function and lauded about the deliciousness of tajine, I proceeded to ask them why they had not taken me to a restaurant that had tajine, instead of where we all ate, and we both had a big laugh about that.
Her brother and her self came up to casablanca from the south of morocco on a commute that was over 7 hours to photograph. She said to me, “can you make sure you take a pic of my brother and me so my mother knows that he was with me the whole time!” We both got another laugh out of that!


Here’s another snap of the fashionable Shaimaa in Casablanca, Morocco.
She did a great job making an accessory, her belt, a main ingredient of the outfit. It’s definitely the most applicable color to compliment the overall tones of the look.
This area was in an old part of Casablanca which provided the lovely stoned road work and colorful architecture that one expects of morocco.
