What is behind the "iron curtain" of the 21st century? Swedish photographer was able to visit in the closed state of modernity - North Korea.

59-year-old Swedish photographer Bjorn Bergman two years sought a tourist visa to North Korea. Friends tried to dissuade him from this idea, but Bjorn was adamant.

During the 9-day trip to North Korea, he managed to make great photographs depicting the life of the closed state in the world.
