Jin So-hee, 28, a haenyeo, also known as a "sea woman", works in the sea off Geoje, South Korea, March 30, 2021. The disappearance of the seaweed, which the haenyeo harvest as food and which also provides habitat for other creatures they hunt, has forced the women to routinely dive to increasing depths, at least 12 metres, Jin said. "There is less for us to collect and we have to dive deeper, which is physically challenging," Jin said. Besides climate change, the women say they also have to deal with more pollution in the seas, complicating their already dangerous jobs. "I'm finding more golf balls than sea cucumbers now," Jin said. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji SEARCH "HAENYEO HONG-JI" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Jin So-hee, 28, a haenyeo, also known as a "sea woman", dives into the water to harvest sea cucumbers in the sea off Geoje in South Korea, March 31, 2021. Jin says her hopes of making a living as a free diver are now further threatened by climate change. "The amount of seafood we can collect is continuously decreasing," she said. "I thought that as long as my body is healthy, I could have been the oldest haenyeo when I'm 90 or 100. But now that I think about it, my health is not the only concern.

Long COVID sufferer Pedro Sanchez-Vicente, a 56-year-old event organiser, poses for a photograph taken through blue plastic, in Madrid, Spain, March 17, 2021. The photograph was taken through blue plastic to visualise the effects of long COVID. Sanchez-Vicente spent 100 days intubated in an ICU unit after getting infected with COVID in March, 2020. But after his release from the hospital he started developing many of the symptoms associated with long COVID. "I'm not your typical long COVID case, because most of those patients haven't been hospitalised or not for too long, unlike me. But I share with them the mental mist, the paresthesia, the hearing problems, conjunctivitis, eye herpes. You could say I'm a hybrid," he said. When Sanchez-Vicente got transferred to a regular ward at the hospital, he spent most of his time in the armchair in his room, he was so weak he could barely stand up and laying down in bed for long periods of time was difficult. "When I returned home I saw the armchair my family had bought for me as a surprise. I have pretty much been living in that armchair for the past year.

The photograph was taken through blue plastic to visualise the effects of long COVID. Kemp says long COVID affects her ability to communicate in Spanish. "I lack (mental) agility, I feel like I'm communicating through a crystal glass," she said. Kemp had to give up dancing, swimming and her daily long walks due to the permanent fatigue she experiences. "The first time I managed to walk as far as the park by my house, I felt like I was flying. It was only a few meters away, and I had to sit to rest, but I felt like the whole world was opening up to me. I used to go on foot everywhere and it was as if I was on my way somewhere again.

The photograph was taken through blue plastic to visualise the effects of long COVID. Year-long symptoms have made Diez give up exercise and forego medical congresses where she has trouble concentrating. "The first time I tried to take a swim in my pool, thinking that the water would help me improve my symptoms, it was very distressing. I started feeling out of breath the more I was submerging in the water. I had to sit on the steps and let the water surround me no higher than my waist to regain my breath," she said. Diez sometimes feels like a rookie at work despite her 20-year experience and has invented routines to remember tasks she used to perform automatically. She feels she has lost part of her identity, but she tries to stay positive. "I'm adapting to what I have, I will enjoy what I have now and I can't keep thinking about what I had before.

Chuck Pryor, the funeral director of Pryority Funeral Experience, wears a protective face mask as he picks up the body of a person who died of causes unrelated to COVID-19, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Houston, Texas, U.S., February 12, 2021. As the virus showed no sign of releasing its grip and deaths mounted over the summer and in the fall, exhausted workers at Pryority Funeral Experience fell ill while others quit. "People quit because they mentally can't handle it," Pryor said. "I pray God, - just give me strength... I want to run away right now, to be honest ... I'm concerned about myself breaking down so I just ask God to help me." REUTERS/Callaghan O'Hare SEARCH "FUNERALS O'HARE" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES
