Notes on IDEOLOGY view bio

"The news about North Korea was all negative," Hiroshi Watanabe says. "I thought...there have to be different stories there." And so he set out to find a different angle on North Korea than its frequent depiction by the media as a nation of oppressed people. What he found was a quiet vibrancy; two lines of schoolgirls scowl in red scarves, a young violinist in a canary-yellow Hanbok calmly appraises the viewer, and a boy soldier smiles bashfully under his exuberant salute. "They were as curious about me as I was about them," Watanabe says. We are left with the unseen North Korea--colorful, passionate portraits from an oft-hidden corner of the world.
