THE NORTH FAITH

Kasia Gumpert's project, the series of The North Faith explores the city of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. This selection is one person’s photographic journey into the crossroads, byways and landscapes, the in-between spaces, the objects and flora, their positioning and relationships to each other, that made Pyongyang a fascinating, bewildering, and close to overwhelming place. Gumpert's relationship between everyday city scenes juxtaposed with carefully composed personal narratives taken by large format (4x5) camera utilize the connection between its intimate moments and layered sceneries that generate a new territory from conventional interpretations of reality.
