Haciendo caso a su lema: “Todo lo que no está prohibido, está permitido”, los turistas que viajan por Corea del Norte hacen precisamente eso, fotografiar todo lo que no se puede en el país más cerrado del mundo. Y si tomamos en cuenta a los especialistas extranjeros que trabajan en ese lugar, los guías turísticos y periodistas, se pueden encontrar bastantes imágenes prohibidas.
Esto fue justo lo que buscamos para traerte este artículo. Veamos cómo es la vida cotidiana de Pyongyang, a través de los ojos de los infractores de la ley que subieron sus fascinantes fotos a Instagram.
The vicar of the Chilgol Church (the smaller of the two protestant churches in Pyongyang), blesses the congregation at the end of his Sunday sermon. On this occasion there were maybe 20 local worshippers, plus around a dozen member of the choir. The church is located next to the birthplace of Kim Il Sung’s mother, who was known to be a churchgoer herself. Photo by @simonkoryo

Children take piano lessons under portraits of North Korea's former leaders ||| Every apartment, dorm room, office building, factory etc. have these portraits. Often times it's accompanied by the photo shown of the two together. On occasion a portrait of Kim Jong Suk, Kim IL Sung's wife, is included, but that image not mandatory. These new portraits were introduced in 2012 to make the leaders appear approachable, even "fatherly." ||| Photo by @shaneohodhrain
