Portraits of North Korea through an iPhone

Photographer Omid Scheybani has pulled back the veil on the mystery and negative press surrounding North Korea, with an intimate and revealing set of portraits captured on his iPhone. “The iPhone allowed me to do a lot of things that would not have been possible with a larger camera” explained Scheybani to EyeEm, “Pull it out, take a few shots, and put it back into your pocket… The iPhone gives me a lot of flexibility. Furthermore, I’m rather sorry than safe… certainly a risky attitude in the DPRK, but that’s just me as a photographer.”
