与日剧《海女》不谋而合,德国摄影师Nina Poppe也将镜头对准了这一特殊群体。海女们大多已年过六十,这些饱含亲情、温情与敬意的照片真实再现了海女如今的生活现状,也令观者为这项传统的行将逝去感到扼腕。

Nina Poppe is a German photographer and curator who published Ama, The images tell the story of contemporary Japanese female pearl divers, aka ama. These women make their living by diving for abalone, a slimy sea snail that produces pearls. Ama is an extinguishing profession; most of these women are around 60, some are over 80. Nina decided to photograph these women before it was too late, before no ama was diving into the blue anymore.
