"Life in the Cult of Kim"

1 of 12

"Life in the Cult of Kim" North Korea remains the most isolated, secretive country on earth, a place where daily life revolves around reverence for the dictator Kim Jong Il and his late father Kim Il-Sung and where any information - in or out - is blocked. These simple images offer rare glimpses of life inside the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
