Eddo Hartmann - Silver

Everything looks too wide and too big, in other words: megalomaniac. The colour grey comes out well. You can see right away that these aren’t photos of an easy-going country. That message is apparent in each element in the images.
It is quite special that this photographer got access to North Korea and that he was allowed to photograph there. Even though he probably did exactly what was asked of him, to a Western audience, the photos have the opposite effect. The people in it are trying to look good and make a good impression, however, to the viewer everything looks orchestrated and fake.
