A little slice of calculated life: Photos of North Korea

 

One, Among Many.

The Boston Globe has made some of the best photo essays that I have seen as of late. I have included a few photos from their essays and articles as my photo of the week. However, their entire photo essays are usually fantastic. They are very real, showing real people in real circumstances and events. We read, hear, watch and see the news everywhere, but sometimes one picture can tell an entire story.

This photo collection is of North Korea, where the only pictures shown are usually state-controlled and or produced. Check it out here.

You can get a sense of control and restrictions through the pictures themselves. Everything looks produced, slick and almost fake. The people and environments depicted in the photos are uniform, calculated and preconceived. No wonder we know very little of what actually goes on in North Korea.
