This Photographer Got Banned Because He Took These Photos. No One Has Seen Them Until Now.



French photographer Eric Lafforgue took a trip to North Korea. On his trip he was accompanied by state officials and tour guides that all but denied the explicitly visible plight of the people that Lafforgue captured on his camera. While leaving he was asked to delete all pictures but he managed to slip these through. The rogue state banned him from ever visiting again. THese are heart shattering.
