On Thursday 10 May Foam 3h opens the exhibition Ama by Nina Poppe.
For the project, Poppe spent a significant amount of time together with the Ama.
These legendary fisherwomen of the Japanese island of Ise-Shima dive for abalone,
using no equipment, in water that is up to 30 metres deep.
Poppe photographed the lives of these women, both in the water and on the island.
