Gursky in N. Korea

I first saw these images in April's edition of Wallpaper magazine. The article explained that somehow, the German-born photographer got permission to attend a military ceremony in Pyongyang–not once, but a few times, since the first batch of images were too dark. In the large format photos, thousands of military personnel and state dancers become specks. They're static in front of giant murals of state propaganda.
