There are a lot of strict rules in North Korea. Particularly around censorship.
More often than not, photography is not even allowed.
All of North Korea is a mystery, which we only get glimpses of through smuggled photos and information.
Outsiders aren’t even allowed into the country unless they pay a hefty price.
North Korea is extremely isolated, and secretive.
Eric Lafforgue is a photographer, who has visited North Korea six times, and all the photos he has taken of this mysterious place are compelling but very illegal (in North Korea).
He risked everything when he smuggled his memory cards with countless pictures of this mysterious country.
Eric’s now banned from returning.
But because of the photos he took, people around the world are able to get a glimpse of what life in North Korea is really like.
Power and working transportation is limited in North Korea. Most of the time, public buses break down and the passengers have to push them themselves.
