Intimate perspectives on North Korea

Intimate perspectives on North Korea

Festival Year :


Exhibition Description

Compiled over two years, this series is arguably the most extensive survey of the DPRK (North Korea) by an independent photographer.  
These images, never before seen in Australia, focus on ordinary North Koreans around the country and introduces unknown and unexpected sides to the DPRK.  
The images of North Korea seen in the media offer a limited view of the country. Here the photographer invites us to consider and examine a more layered and complex society.  


This exhibition is outdoors. Please check what COVID-19 restrictions are in place before you visit.
