An immense spectacle: the reflection of an entire country revealed by the ruling dictatorship to tourists. North Korea continually and systematically offers the same imagery... Anyone wishing to objectively record, film or photograph in North Korea, will be sorely disappointed.
Tourists, such as journalists, are bound to take images from a particular spot, or from a specific angle, and above all, according to a set-up that is written and played out by "actors". They built a kingdom of dreams for millions of people in a half century. Leaders have written many incredible idiotic quotes about their revered people and declared North Korean society as the best in the world. But between this philosophy and reality, there is a huge gap. My work was providing evidence of the difference between North Korean leader's philosophy and the reality of life.
