The photographer flew over the city on a super-light single-engine airplane. He saw an incredible landscape with some bizarre buildings that would be look very good in a science fiction film.

Aram Pan used both a conventional camera and a 360° action camera.

The photographer said that he first visited North Korea in August 2013. He was fascinated by Pyongyang. The Singaporean decided to show other people what he saw and what inspired him so much. Pan also said that the North Koreans are very proud of their capital.
