Eric Testroete managed to take photographs of not quite propaganda value, and more than a few quite revealing (via Business Insider) during a trip to North Korea with his girlfriend in September, 2011. The photos offer a dystopian, alt history twist on a 1950s Korea warped by patriarchal power and extreme deprivation.
There are more than a few photographs of children here, and a pained face on extreme poverty.
No surprise here, as is a photo of a wood gas-powered truck. Along with a darkened cityscape and the brighter lights of Dandong, It’s clear North Korea’s economic development is hobbled.
