A tantalising glimpse into the surreal landscape and psyche of the world's only communist dynasty. Secretive, paranoid and unrepentantly militant, North Korea remains a mystery to most of the world. Now, capturing headlines as part of George W. Bush's Axis of Evil', Nicolas Righetti becomes one of few Western artists allowed to photograph Pyongyang's candy coloured, kitsch New Order. Forbidden from photographing or speaking directly to individuals, he focuses on interiors, murals, pageants, and the slogans in the street or those offered by his ever-present guide. In full-colour.'
