At the border between North Korea and South Korea, a heavily militarized, 2.5-mile-wide and 160 mile-long buffer keeps the peace between the two enemy states. South Korea draws tourists to the border with historical displays and observatories. In this photograph shot in June 2012, photographer Jörg Brüggemann found families collecting shells at Songjijo Beach near the border on South Korea’s west coast.
