David Guttenfelder is a National Geographic photographer I admire and follow on Instagram, and is one of the very few Western journalists allowed to travel in North Korea. These photos and video, from his recent assignment for The New York Times are a window to a country that has not been photographed for at least 60 years.

Also see here an unbelievable selection of everyday North Korean objects, that the photographer has collected and photographed during his 40 trips through the country.
