Illegal Photos Of North Korea That Kim Jong Un Doesn’t Want You To See


Artist and photographer Eric Lafforgue is one of the very few that have had a chance to visit and document what North Korea is really like. “Since 2008, I have ventured to North Korea six times,” he said. “Thanks to digital memory cards, I was able to save photos that I was forbidden to take or was told to delete by the minders.”

“They didn’t allow me to take pictures of the police, the army, etc. But with a 300mm zoom lens and a seat in the back of the bus I could take so many…” He shot thousands of pictures, showing citizens and government officials going about their everyday lives. “As soon as they were opening a new area to visit I tried to go and see it, documenting the place.”

Here are some of those photos. Comment on your favorites.
