Pyongyang, North Korea
Women wearing traditional clothes react as they march past the stand with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a military parade marking the 105th birth anniversary of country's founding father, Kim Il Sung, in Pyongyang April 15, 2017. Easily lost in that mass scale of North Korean parades are the individual faces of those who participate in it. Dressed in their finest clothes, many stand holding plastic flowers or colourful placards in the sun for hours. Divided into work units, people prepare for months for such events, often having no choice but to forgo time at weekends and after work to practice.
