Nothing was easy in North Korea. Whether it was taking notes or taking photos there were rules to be observed. I learned to my cost that the statues of the Great Leaders could only be photographed in their entirety, and never from behind. But the more we got to know our minders the more relaxed they became with us and the resulting photos, all taken by myself and the crew, give a rare and unusual glimpse of life away from the eyes of the world.
