Charlie Crane was faced with the task of photographing one of the most secretive and perhaps the most censored countries in the world. It took a year of trying to obtain permission to bring his camera to North Korea, and even as he got there, he was faced with incredibly tight restrictions. As digging deeper would be nearly impossible, Crane chose to go another route, and photographed exactly what he was permitted to see. As a result, this work is of the strongest I’ve seen.
The following images are from tourist sites around the city of Pyongyang, North Korea.
By and far one of the most interesting ways to document a city.
All photos from here.

Wow. @Broken City Lab – Welcome to Pyongyang http://bit.ly/mRQqtj
I can’t believe how clean the spaces are…both literally and in terms of design.
For some reason, this both amazes and unsettles me: Welcome to Pyongyang http://pulse.me/s/2m6M #fb
I wish more people would write sites like this that are actually fun to read. With all the crap floating around on the net, it is rare to read a site like yours instead.
Well thank you, Shelba! We really appreciate the nice comment.
