A rare glimpse into daily life in the Capital of North Korea.



Wow, these photos are truly amazing. Taken by British photographer Charlie Crane who got a VERY rare chance to photograph ordinary people inside the media blackhole.

This is a set of some of the most powerful images i've seen in a very long time.

  2. I just saw these pictures a couple days ago and had the same reaction. They are really powerful, just the way people pose tells you so much about the regime they have to live under

  10. Such an insight. It's a wonder whether they were set up by the regime, supposed to highlight it (in which case... wow), or whether the people actually live in such surroundings (in which case, wow).

  14. I saw a documentary on this.. everyone there is brainwashed and living in fear. Those pictures look like they were taken in the 90's or something.
