David Guttenfelder’s work in North Korea
Photographer David Guttenfelder, the chief Asia photographer for The Associated Press, took on North Korea after spending seven years taking photos in Afghanistan. He was granted more access than other photographers and could travel around more freely. His recent photos (2011) from North Korea cover something else than the Arirang Festival, which has been already shown by Andreas Gursky, Noh Suntag and many after them. Certainly most images of Guttenfelder staged in a larger context but they are still remarkable.
