海女 / Ama

One of the things from Japan that has always stolen my attention is that collective referred as Ama. The Amas were the women from a tribe in Japan that completely dedicated themselves to the recollection of pearls and uni. Diving almost naked, they have some kind of eroticism that I find hard to explain but that results being very pure and noble.

Yoshiyuki Iwase spend part of his life taking Ama pictures and even compiled some books about them.

いつも、日本の海女ですごい興味があった。裸体で泳ぐの女、すごいエロチックぽいけど、変態じゃない。

岩瀬さんは海女の一敗写真を撮って、本も作った。
