North Korea doesn’t get a lot of love in the media. And for good reasons in a lot of cases. Lost in the conversation are the millions of people who go about their daily life trying to maximize love and happiness. I really don’t like it when tourists take pictures of all the mundane things when they travel, but I wanted to capture people going about daily life in North Korea. The people you see in these images are probably no different from you, with the same hopes and desires of peace, love, happiness, and success despite the next headline you read about their country.
