David Guttenfelder's Instagrams from North Korea

As mobile photography becomes an increasingly reputable medium, Associated Press photographer David Guttenfelder has just won TIME Magazine‘s “Instagram Photographer of the Year” award. Guttenfelder received the nod after releasing a series of images taken in North Korea, a country notable for its censorship – amongst other things. As detailed in an interview with Wired, the photographer aimed to “piece together a picture of [the] country for the whole world to see…,” an amiable goal in light of the DPRK’s newly-loosened laws regarding mobile phones and 3G networks. Enjoy for a moment the stark images – a poignant, unsparing look inside one of the world’s great modern enigmas.
