Icons of Rhetoric

Chris Barrett, photographer, and Gianluca Spezza, researcher/writer 

Images and text that offer a different approach to documenting North Korea.

Icons of Rhetoric offers a unique, introspective look at North Korea, crafted using North Korean news footage, a smartphone, Impossible instant film and North Korean testimonies.

The project investigates the visual representation of North Korea and the contextualisation of media images; exploring the visual lexicon which permeates the often cited ‘most isolated country in the world’: North Korea.

The exhibition will see the launch of a zine containing images and text from the work in partnership with thephotocopyclub.com


 This exhibition is part of Doomed Gallery’s Photomonth 2014 programme.
