Architectural Photo Tour of Pyongyang, North Korea

 

Commercial photographer Raphael Olivier recently travelled to Pyongyang, North Korea and created a fantastic photo essay exploring the city’s vintage socialist architecture.

The French photographer who is currently based in Singapore explains:

 

Almost completely destroyed during the Korean War (1950 – 1953), Pyongyang raised from its ashes in the 1960’s and 70’s with the help of local architects and designers often trained in the Soviet Union, resulting in impressive structures marked by influences of constructivist, modernist, futurist and brutalist architectural styles.

 

You can find the complete 22-picture photo essay on Behance and see more amazing photo projects by Olivier at the links below.
