As both Koreas are trying to work towards a peace solution, the defections from the DPRK are happening daily. In my first chapter ( http://www.timfranco.com/unperson ), I have interviewed & portrayed those defectors. This time, I traveled along the border of the secretive state and China. The two countries are separated by two rivers and one mountain. Most of the defectors are crossing the rivers into China before finding their difficult way into South Korea. Crossing those rivers is the first step into a new world. Those photos are documenting those places and showing how close and easy it is to make this first step.
