AMA (2018)

AMA took as its starting point photographs and documentary films that portray the work force and life of women divers. Heirs of an ancient tradition, these women are known as “ama” – women of the sea – and snorkel in the icy waters of the Pacific to hunt oysters, shellfish, seaweed and pearls.

“We are interested in the strength of survival of this way of life and of these women who are associated to literally live off the ocean. The poetic intensity of these images seems to update a certain spirit of collectivity”, say the creator-interpreters.
