Synopsis Intriguing. Absorbing. A truly eye-opening glimpse into the world's most mysterious and fascinating country.

North Korea is a land of unrivalled natural beauty with more than 5,000 years of history and culture. From the top of mythical Mount Paekdu to the lush valleys and the incredible rock formations of stunning Mount Kumgang, and from the white beaches of the East Sea to the hidden getaways on the West coast, the DPRK's natural attractions are now finally starting to be recognized. This resilient land has lived through many periods of historical significance, yet its people have always maintained their dignity and humility. The veil that has until now shrouded places such as Pyongyang, Mount Myohyang, Kuwol and Nampo has been lifted, and the imagery that is being revealed will astonish the mind of even the most experienced travellers. The power of each image carefully challenges the way in which we look at this land and its people.

For many of us, this is the first time we see the North Korean people as they truly are. The only question remaining is, why was such an insightful photographic record not published much earlier?
