Korean reprint of 1959's book of photos by Chris Marker. Over 120 black-and-white photos of North Korea with illustrations from maps, comic books, street posters and paintings. This book was the result of a trip to North Korea. Coréennes explores Marker's innovative, seamless moving in-between media, defying boundaries between still photography, cinema, the novel, historical accounts and the travelogue. Rarely has an artist authored so many disparate masterpieces (Afterimage). Preceding his best-known work La Jetee (1962), which was a series of still photographs cast as a short film, Marker's Coréennes in many ways inverts that format-here casting a film in a series of still photographs and text.
