See David Guttenfelder’s award-winning photos from inside North Korea

David Guttenfelder, whose terrific images from North Korea have become a window into the Hermit Kingdom, was honored Wednesday at the 2013 Infinity Awards by the International Center for Photography.

Guttenfelder, who spent years as a photographer in Africa and Afghanistan, is the chief Asia photographer for the Associated Press. He has most famously focused on North Korea, where he says he spent 100 days last year.

"The very best pictures are the ones you can't describe in words," he said. "You just hold it up and there it is...Woah!"

The video, which was produced by MediaStorm, speaks volume about his work, and the very difficult circumstances under which he operates. Take a moment to watch it.
