+ work

The North Korean Labor Party Office building is a modern cultural heritage site with dark and tragic memories. Here images show the same building taken from a different street, and different viewpoint. The building, after the Japanese occupation period, it was built with the intention for strengthening North Korean governmental politics and control of residents. It was used until the Korean War and has an ill reputation. The building built in Russian architectural style shows off communist power but destroyed and transformed in black color due to the war, cannonballs and bullet shots.
