Not many people in the world have got the chance to know what North Korea is like, but a French photographer Eric Lafforgue is one of those luckiest people who has visited this nation for more than six times. And he did not only visit but also courageously captured the pictures that are forbidden to be clicked.

Eric shares during an interview with Bored Panda, "Thanks to digital memory cards, I was able to save photos that I was forbidden to take or was told to delete by the minders. I was treated like any other tourist, they didn't allow me to take pictures of the police, the army, etc. But with a 300mm zoom lens and a seat in the back of the bus, I could take so many..." 

After he came back from his sixth trip to North Korea in 2012, the Korean regime found out that Eric has captured the pictures that open doors for other people in the world to see how North Korean people live; hence, he got banned from entering the nation ever again.

So what did he capture? That's an interesting tale. 

Have a look!
