Omid Scheybani is a talented self taught Iranian photographer, who was born in Germany and currently based in San Francisco, USA. He spent the last 6 years working at Google and is currently an MBA Candidate at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Omid shared stunning photos captured on an iPhone 6 from a 10-day trip inside the DPRK. These unique photos observe both the normal daily life and the absurdities in North Korea.
“the iPhone allowed me to do a lot of things that would not have been possible with a larger camera. Pull it out, take a few shots, and put it back into your pocket… The iPhone gives me a lot of flexibility. Furthermore, I’m rather sorry than safe… certainly a risky attitude in the DPRK, but that’s just me as a photographer.”
