Hermit Moments – A Journey to North Korea

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, remains one of the most mysterious and misunderstood countries in the world. While Western headlines are dominated by stories of nuclear testing and forced-labor camps, photographer Gianluca Pardelli wanted to document the human side of this secretive Northeast Asian country. Beyond the massive propaganda façade lies, in fact, a country of hospitable people and splendid landscapes that only awaits to be discovered by temerarious and curious travellers.

With a large anthology of astonishing daily-life images and through a series of sometimes funny, sometimes tragic stories and anecdotes, Gianluca will guide us into North Korea, unveiling the hidden face of the so-called Hermit Kingdom.
