A unique photographic insight into everyday life in what is probably the most isolated country on earth North Korea. A portfolio of scandalising headlines in continuous loop and we think we know the country, of which we still know shamefully little. Award-winning photographer Xiomara Bender documented the rather quiet but nevertheless significant changes in North Korean public life within the last few years with the appeal that: Twenty-six million people have the right not to be forgotten! Text in English and German. AUTHOR: Travel is her passion; the search for the moment she fixes with the camera. With remarkable empathy Xiomara Bender photographs people. She is unfamiliar with gimmicky staging, but respect is all the more important. The German-Swiss photographer left her home country at the age of 17 and went to India to finish her schooling in an English boarding school. She then attended the Technische Kunsthochschule in Berlin. Numerous national and international awards recognised her distinctive imagery early in her career. Xiomara Bender photographs with Leica and is a Leica ambassador. SELLING POINTS: .

A deep, never-before-seen insight into everyday life in North Korea . At last, a book that looks at the people of a country that is one thing above all: enigmatic
