TUMBLR I NEED YOUR HELP
I am planning on entering the National Geographic photography competition and although I obviously won’t win, I still want to enter. But I can’t decide which photograph to enter in the ‘people’ category.
I have narrowed my choice down to three photographs, all are from North Korea.
(click on them to see them much bigger)
Left: A young North Korean gymnast hides his face with dirty hands in front of the Hamhung Grand Theatre where they were training for mass gymnastics shows such as Arirang
Middle: A lone North Korean soldier sitting with his head in his lap on a bench in the Mansudae Fountain Park in Pyongyang early one morning.
Right: A North Korean child pretends to look at western visitors through binoculars at the Dongmong cooperative farm on the outskirts of the city of Hamhung. The Hamhung region has only been open to visitors for two years, so most locals have never seen foreigners. Note the child is wearign a ‘Big Bird’ cardigan and ‘Hello Kitty’ boots.
Which one do you prefer? Let me know as a reply or as an ask and I will love you, buy you a steak dinner and a Gameboy Color.
