People of the DPRK (North Korea)

Some photographs, taken by me and Aina Skoland (who was in our group). As you can see, people like to dress well and go about their daily lives as one might expect.

      1. Thanks, Roland. I hope that didn’t come across as too brusque. It wasn’t an indictment, just something I noticed.

        Learning to read body language is such a great skill. It’s really fun to watch politicians’ physical responses to tough questions and tense situations. There should be a class on this in all Communist parties!

  1. The people look like people anywhere in that region, going about their business in a large city.. If you said the photos were from China, or japan, nobody would question any aspect of them. Say they are from the DPRK, and all sorts of connotations start to be applied. Nice shots, Roland. Thanks for posting.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. It is amazing the way even these shots can be misinterpreted in a sinister way. I recall one person in our group being convinced that all the highrise buildings in Pyongyang must be empty and that they are there just for tourists to see. He seemed to miss the many people on the streets going about their daily lives.
