Couple at a flower show in central Pyongyang

Image drawn from a long-term project on the DPRK (North Korea) depicting less-commonly shown aspects of daily life. Flower shows are not unusual on special occasions (in this instance the anniversary of the Workers' Party). The begonias are known as 'Kimjongilia' flowers, the orchids as 'Kimilsungia'.
