I thought the article, Illuminating North Korea, with photographs and video by David Guttenfelder had good imagery and text. The photography was really the main piece of informative multimedia. Many of the photographs that Guttenfelder took were set up and approved by the government because of North Korea’s strict policies.

The text didn’t really give much information detail about North Korea, it only provided context for the photo displayed. The text also was encouraging to the viewer to look into the underlying meaning of the photo, which I thought was helpful.

I think that this article definitely could’ve benefitted from a map or a brief history on North Korea. I also would have appreciated interviews from locals, however I know that the reporters were likely limited in whom they were allowed to speak to.
