The Children of North Korea

My favorite part of North Korea was undoubtedly the children. I met many kids that I played with, from proper Pyongyang upper-class children, to kids from a countryside farming town. While we see many images in the media of the country raising havoc with military bravado, we often forget about the next generation of Koreans who have the power to perhaps change their country for the better. This North Korea photography gallery is an ode to them.

Support my work chronicling North Korea and other places in the world by becoming a citizen photo-journalist yourself and purchasing a Canon Rebel t3i from my affiliate store below, and I’ll make a tiny percentage of the sale. Buying a good DSLR was one of the best purchase decisions in my life. Even with a cheap lens, I still produce great images on the t3i because this professional grade camera has such a good sensor.
