I know we’re posted a link to these photos before, but Foreign Policy picked up on a post by Korea Bang of rare color photos of Korea around the time of the Korean War.
At this point, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out that the publishing company I work for, Seoul Selection, has published a coffee table book of color photographs from the Korean War (Amazon) taken by war correspondent John Rich.
Korea Bang has also posted some more color photos of Korea taken during the 60s, along with netizen reactions. You can see the entire album on Flickr here.
Speaking of photos and Foreign Policy, they’ve also got a photo essay of Instagram photos from Iran. No, it has nothing to do with Korea, but I’m something of an Iranophile, and the city of Isfahan is high up in my top 10 places to visit before I kick. Anyway, my blog.
