North Korean Confidence
by Patrick Swirc
Publisher's Description
“It is impossible to travel alone in North Korea. As soon as you arrive, two guides pick you up. In reality, they act like policemen. They look at each of your actions, each of your movements; you are not allowed to do anything without them. They prevent you from speaking with anybody. As my two guards said it was forbidden to take any photographs, I decided to photograph them and to write their comments.” Patrick Swirc

DPKR is an unusual travelogue, depicting Patrick Swirc’s difficult journey through North Korea. Whilst it appears to depict only that constricted version of the country he was ‘allowed’ to see, his photographs in fact offer a seering insight into a country little documented by Western photographers.
