Something completely different…

During the summer of 2019 I travelled to North Korea having previously visited in 2005. Photographs of my trip have been uploaded to a separate blog DPRK IN THE VIEWFINDER and photos are also being tweeted from @EscapetoNorthK1

Back in 2005 I distributed Bradford City shirts to a youth team in Pyongyang having presented them initially to surviving members of the North Korean 1966 World Cup team (as below).


North Korea is a fascinating place although I won’t make excuses for its regime. Many of the stereotypes in the western press are wide of the mark and as a destination it is certainly thought provoking, not to mention a photographer’s paradise.

I hope you visit the blog!
