18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Kim City 5

September 10, 2018, thousands of students gather on Kim Il-sung Square near the Grand People’s Study House, Pyongyang’s main library built in classical Korean style, for the final rehearsal of the torchlight procession to be held that evening; part of the on-going celebrations marking the 70th anniversary of the founding of North Korea. Each participant is assigned a freshly-painted mark on the ground.
