North Korea has created an environment of ubiquitous propaganda that surpasses all other communist regimes. Philippe Chancel's photographs explore how the political has been transfigured into an all-encompassing aesthetic.

Philippe Chancel was born in Paris in 1959 where he continues to live and work. Over the last twenty years his photography has explored the intersection between art, documentary and journalism. His work from North Korea gained him international recognition and acclaim. He has been widely exhibited and published.
