North Korea Photo Essay

 | August 18, 2008 3:36 PM

My friend essny told me about a fascinating set of photos from North Korea on Flickr taken by a French photographer.  The photos look like the ones I have seen before by others who have gone on the same tour as this photographer did (it seems like there is only one tour).  But these photographs are high quality and have some interesting descriptions and comments.

Here are a few of the photos I liked.
