David Guttenfelder in North Korea

David Guttenfelder has been in North Korea for a while it seems, we first came across his pictures more than a year ago.

While threats of a missile launch have renewed tensions with North Korea, photojournalist David Guttenfelder has returned to continue documenting life there.

As the world watches to see what North Korea’s next move will be in a high-stakes game of brinksmanship with the United States, residents of its capital aren’t hunkering down in bunkers and preparing for the worst. Instead, they are out on the streets en masse for the birthday of national founder Kim Il Sung — the biggest holiday of the year.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a stark warning to North Korea on Friday not to test-fire a mid-range missile, while rejecting a new U.S. intelligence report suggesting significant progress in the communist regime’s nuclear weapons program. These galleries are from the Denver Post
