The Boston Globe website has a section called the Big Picture which has some great images. Last week they posted 32 photos of North Korea. Many of them are from news agencies, taking snaps across the border from China with long lenses, but the core of the collection is from Eric Lafforgue, who has recently been inside the DPRK.
Pictures of the countryside, of Pyongyang, of the open road (above) of the Mass Games, and of the people.
“Not an easy task to shoot a smiling soldier!” comments Lafforgue of one image (above right). Visit the Boston Globe website for the complete set, and for the complete images from which the above thumbnails are cropped.
