Authors note:
The following photographs are conceptual poem-documents. They are part of a series titled KIM, created by opening a picture of Kim Jong-un with Wordpad, thereby creating a wasteland of language at the press of a button. I then treated the resultant text as a blasted landscape proper, one which I photographed in the likeness of aerial photography. In response to the huffing and puffing of North Korea and the ever flowing vernacular of threat.
