American photojournalist David Guttenfelder is the chief Asia photographer for the Associated Press. He is a seasoned veteran of photojournalism having won numerous prestigious awards. For the last year was one of very few people granted access to document life in North Korea.
His Instagram is filled with incredibly haunting images from life within a country that is largely closed off from the rest of the world. Constantly being accompanied by official government guides it was difficult to capture his normal quality of work. The luxury and freedom of a relaxed environment wasn't an option. Most of the time he found himself being rushed and limited.
Despite the challenges the pictures are fascinating and give insight to a country that is a mystery to almost everyone else in the world. For his distinguished work he's been name TIME Magazine's Instagram Photographer of the Year
