DPRK is a continuation of ‘Everyday Iran’, an archived series of photographs first published by Your Local Newsstand. In this series, Aditia Djayasudarma examines lives through the lens of a visiting foreigner in the ‘Last Iron Curtain’, captured from his solitary travels in off-beaten borders.


Shot entirely using an iPhone 4 in the blistering cold winter of 2014, enduring an arduous 28hrs journey via railway from Beijing to Pyongyang, these images went through numerous checkpoints and vetted through by guards of the state. Many were deleted due to sensitivity but these images survived that narrative.
