'Lens On North Korea' Photo Exhibition

'Lens On North Korea' Photo Exhibition

Wellington photographer Karim Sahai presents 'Lens On North Korea' a must-see photo exhibition about the most reclusive nation on the planet.

Sahai states: "I sought permission to photograph in North Korea for several years. Beyond the korean and western propaganda, I wanted to find out if it was possible to catch glimpses of normalcy, slivers of daily life, while being under the heavy restrictions that were going to be imposed on me while visiting this out-of-bounds country. What I discovered was a mind-boggling surreality intertwined with aspects of life which I never expected to relate to."

'Lens On North Korea' is on until September 16, first floor gallery, St James Theatre, Courtenay Place, Wellington.
