On a need to know basis

Everything we know about the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is what they want us to know. And see. People who are visiting the country will get a tour along the various iconic communistic achievements and symbols. Charlie Crane, British photographer, visited North Korea to photograph different places in the capital of Pyongyang. He decided, if he wasn’t allowed to get deeper underneath the surface of this ‘Stalinist Disneyland’, he would just photograph the surface itself. Resulting in a wonderful photo series of places and people of this ever so closed-up country.
