Three days after Donald Trump tweeted that the U.S. is "locked and loaded" in its nuclear standoff with North Korea, photographer Max Pinckers and writer Evan Osnos arrived in Pyongyang to meet the officials responsible for analyzing America. The project, North Korea in the Era of Kim Jong Un, illustrates the 21st century nuclear crisis.

This week, Pinckers' images from North Korea will be featured on the Pulitzer Center Instagram
