Breakfast with Miju Lim produced this spontaneous “art object” . This is how she peeled her tangerine. Eastern art is Eastern art. Gotta love it. Miju is my fixer/translator now on Jeju Island, S Korea where I have a one month commission through Magnum and the Arts Council of Jeju to produce a b&w book and exhibit on the Haenyeo.. the women shellfish divers. A dying breed.

    This is only maybe the third time in our roughly one decade of virtual acquaintance that I can honestly confess being totally envious of your situation… hope you enjoy it as much as I would!

  • David; not having a camera crew following you around must make it easier to shoot this time! :-)
