Red Star Utopia: Inside North Korea


By Austin Andrews; Foreword by Simon Cockerell

In Red Star Utopia: Inside North Korea, Austin Andrews uncovers visual clues about the country’s hardline isolationist experiment and how it affects the rhythms and routines of its people. Photos in the book include remote parts of the country, seldom if ever visited by foreigners.

What they say

“Visitors to this isolated country who are willing to look may come across some surprising sights, as Austin Andrews discovered, that don’t fit the prevailing narratives of the country.” — The Globe and Mail

“There is power in the everyday scenes that often speak about reality, hardships, and the inspiring reliance of the people Andrews shoots.” — Eric Volmers, Calgary Herald
