Haenyeo in the 30's

When the Swedish zoologist and explorer Sten Bergman visited Korea in 1935-36, he became extremely fascinated by the Haenyeo culture.

Sten Bergman captured this in travelogues, photographs and motion pictures.

Some of these are presented in the exhibition. This documentation shows that the work and its traditions have not changed much over time.
