Escape from North Korea video will be presented at LOOP Barcelona by Chi-Wen Gallery (Taiwan.) This year, LOOP Barcelona, a fair exclusively devoted to the video art, will take place between June 2 - 4, 2016. This photo was taken on a @natgeo assignment in Seoul, South Korea, 2008. Days after reaching South Korea, a North Koran defector (center) had surgery for thyroid cancer. Outside her hospital room, overcome with gratitude, she prays with refugee Hana Kim, and Chun Ki-won (right), the Seoul pastor who arranged her escape. Pastor Chun and his staff visit her who is in the hospital for cancer surgery. Pastor Chun was once detained in China for helping North Korean defectors. So far, he has helped over 1,000 North Korean defectors to escape. #MagnumPhotos#EscapefromNorthKorea#NorthKoreandefector#LoopBarcelona#cccontheroad
