Arlene Collins Presents her Photographs from North Korea



Social documentary photographer Arlene Collins presents her recent photographs from North Korea. In July Collins photographed in the capital Pyongyang and traveled south to Kaesong and to the DMZ, or Demilitarized Zone. Although highly restricted in her ability to photograph, she was able to capture most of what she saw using the compact yet high-end Sony RX100 camera. She discusses her photographs and her experience trying to photograph, with two minders by her side at all times.

Collins also discusses the challenges of creating personal photographs when traveling, as well as her various shooting techniques. She reveals how she was able to obtain a visa for travel to North Korea, how she worked with her minders, and shares her many fascinating stories from this secretive nation.
