Werner Kranwetvogel is a film director and photographer. He studied at the Munich Film School  and now directs commercials and high quality image films. Werner travelled with Koryo Tours for his first series of pictures on the Mass Games which led to the photographic book ‘A Night in Pyongyang‘, published by Nicolai, Berlin (2007).  His second series of photographs were exhibited at the 25th International Poster Biennale in Warsaw in 2016. The pictures later received international attention and a couple of his works selected for Time Magazine’s North Korea special ‘The Photographs that moved them most’ in 2018.

For Koryo Studio, Werner has exclusively chosen a series of 5 images in large format prints and each image has a limited edition of 5 and can only be purchased though the Studio. The selection includes the photography used for the cover of academic Keith Howard’s Song for “Great Leaders” published by Oxford University Press in 2020.
