Korean boatman, ca. 1904 (via MDash)

Possibly the coolest dudes in the whole of Chosun.

The Haechi/Haetae was protecting Gyeongbok Palace back in 1904.

And Monsoon season was a rather serious event.
Some girls went to Gisaeng school.

And some boys carried water.

Music was played.

Rice was pounded.

And doing the laundry was a lot less convenient than today.

Pipes were smoked.

And children were very good at standing in lines.

Their ten pages of photos are well worth checking out if you fancy a glimpse of Korea at the start of the twentieth century.

Jez Aznar phtography | Testament #1: eyeswideopen

Bebeth Calinawan, a 29 year old member of the Mamanwa tribe and a mother of four, bear the scars of bullet wounds fired by government soldiers in Agusan del Norte in Mindanao. Her family were eating lunch at their farm when the first volley of bullets hit her in the chest and arm. Bleeding and fighting for her life, she was brought by the military to their camp and forced her to sign a paper admitting that she is an NPA rebel. When she declined, she was denied proper medical care but was given dextrose with no food for a week. She was detained for one month without charges and was finally released with the help of her father’s relentless appeal through a local radio station. Their ancestral land in Agusan is rich in copper, nickel, and gold and is being explored by numerous foreign mining companies.
