"Last month, North Korea announced plans to create economic zones in every province. The North also recently laid out new laws to facilitate foreign tourism and investment. The laws provide investors with special incentives and guarantees, while giving local leaders greater autonomy to promote themselves and handle business decisions. But it’s unclear how far Pyongyang is willing to go."

Too Much is Not Enough
National Geographic is celebrating its 125th Anniversary with an exhibition of 501 photographs from floor to ceiling and on digital screens at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles.
The beautiful exhibition gallery has been transformed and completely wallpapered with the magazine’s great iconic images.
I’m proud to have my work from Afghanistan, Japan, Cyprus, Egypt, and North Korea included in this overwhelming show on the power of photography.
The exhibit also features an original documentary film profiling the photographers printed in the October special photography issue including me, Lynsey Addario, Marcus Bleasedale, Abelardo Morell, Joel Sartore, and Martin Schoeller.
