Photo and caption by Olaf Schuelke

A North Korean woman walks through lush green fields of crops in rural North Korea. The image might suggest that the isolated country is far from humanitarian crises but despite the crops there are still a lot of people suffering from malnutrition and starvation. Most of the harvested crops go to the elite and to the North Korean military.

Location: Rural North Korea
