From the Daily Mail, yesterday:
A photographer has captured the everyday reality of North Korea, revealing a mixture of national pride and ever-present militarism in the nation for a new calendar.
German-born Christian Petersen-Clausen, who lives in China, recently travelled across the country with a tourist company - snapping everything from passengers on packed buses to children playing outside.
Although he was shepherded towards the propaganda of the country by his guide, Christian was able to capture candid moments like two children holding hands, a mother taking her daughter's picture on a smartphone and even a traditional wedding. ...The photos are portraits of the incredible human spirit. Overwhelming, when one thinks of surviving in such a country.
