Singapore-based French professional photographer Jose Jeuland is showcasing his first-ever photography exhibition on haenyo (해녀), female divers from Jeju Island, South Korea at The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore. Epson Singapore, the official print sponsor, is supporting the exhibition with prints produced by one of its commercial and industrial photographic production printers.

HAENYEO SINGAPORE is a collection of portraits of haenyo printed using the Epson SureColor 64" SC-P20070 with UltraChrome PRO Pigment Ink, on Epson’s Signature Worthy Hot Press Bright paper, which is designed for fine art use.

Tan May Lin, GM, Sales, Marketing and Customer Service Division, Epson Singapore said, “Epson Singapore is proud to be the official print sponsor for Jose’s first ever photography exhibition in Singapore. Jose has captured wonderfully compelling stories that bring the raw emotions of the haenyo sea women to life. With Epson’s photo graphic production printers, we’re excited that our unique combination of Epson’s printhead technology and UltraChrome PRO archival ink technology can help deliver the very best representation of his artworks in final print format.”

As the official print sponsor for HAENYEO SINGAPORE, Epson's professional printing technology aims to enable visitors to experience haenyo portraits and their story of hardship in a visually stunning way.

Jeuland said, "I am thankful for Epson's support as I launch my first-ever photography exhibition here in Singapore. Epson's unique printing technology accentuates the key features of the haenyeo as seen from the photographs at the exhibition. This in turn portrays the raw emotions of these women of great fortitude. With Epson's support, I am happy to share the inspiring story of the Haenyeo women-divers from Jeju, Korea."
