I did the same thing last month in the slums in Uganda and had a similarly exciting experience.
I used a Packfilm Polaroid wich doesn’t let you watch the picture develop. In that (sometimes awkwardly silent) minute of waiting for the print, often people were about to walk away because they didn’t know they could take the picture with them.

I have spent a great deal of time as a US Soldier on the DMZ and my perception was not the greatest. The nights out in the middle of no where listening to the faint sounds of music from propaganda village only served to fuel my imagination. That said, you brought a depth to this, I hadn’t previously seen or felt. Just awesome!!!!!

The story behind the story is an even better story! I saw some of Barria’s photos on Boston.com (the boy violinist in particular) and wondered – is it possible to get a print somehow (is it?) and wound up here. sogohaseoyo! (nice work)

We take for granted ubiquitous access to image capturing and sharing. I agree with Shenzen… when DPRK finally does collapse, the workaday folks are in for such a shock from so many things we take as commonplace.

Another great photoessay from Mr. Barria.

Silliness ( or investing) ideas aside, this is the type of blog that is actually interesting. It has pictures, and it focuses on alot people, not just the blogger, and it humanizes the North Korean topic. Kudos for an excellent blog post.

Age might have something to do with it.

I used them a lot in the seventies and still remember the acidic smell of the developer. What wonderful idea! You made those guys’ day!

They are so far from the real world. How will N. Korean people survive, when their system falls – because it will happen sooner or later. Rest of the world must be very sensitive to them.
