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 record the real life objectively, film or photograph in North Korea, will be sorely disappointed.

Tourists, such as journalists, are told to take images from a particular spot, or a specific angle, and above all, according to a set-up that is written and played out by "actors." They built a hermit kingdom of dreams for millions of real people in a half-century. Leaders of the communist party 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 considerable gap. My work was providing evidence of the difference between real life in North Korea and the imagination of the leaders.

I once heard that North Korea is 100% literate of all their citizens. I wonder if it's true...

Take a good look at those expressionless faces. Sincerely, I feel a terrible pain, when I see so many beautiful girls like these, that does not they have even has the pleasure of smiling.

Certainly. It is a photo of three kids in front of a building, walking back from school. It is daytime and it's mid to late Spring.

I wonder, if there are so many propaganda pictures of successful agriculture, what goes through the minds of all those who do not have enough food?

you never see a full laugh, a beautiful face open in a big smile. I can not understand if it is because they consider it unseemly to laugh in front of others, or if it is because they do not have much to laugh about.

Typically, the North Korean citizen's biotype is thin and short, due to poor diet. In South Korea, the citizen's biotype is well healthier.

All visitors who take a tour of Pyongyang sights are accompanied by a guide. Nobody can leave the pre-established scheme, and neither photograph the city without the permission of this guide.
