3DPRK by Matjaž Tančič

3D portraits from North Korea in 2014, by Beijing based Slovenian photographer Matjaz Tancic, in collaboration with Koryo Studio.

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (commonly referred to as North Korea) is an area of Asia that is unfamiliar to many. Matjaž Tančič’s (b.1982, Slovenia) portraits are taken using a 3D stereoscopic technique, requiring each subject to stand motionless for minutes while multiple photographs capture the requisite perspectives. His landmark 3DPRK series offers a unique glimpse of the citizens of Pyongyang — North Korea’s capital — as well as workers, farmers, educators, athletes, and entertainers from across North Korea.

Matjaž Tančič (1982) is a Slovenian photographer, who lives and creates between Beijing and Ljubljana. He began his path as a photojournalist for Mladina magazine. He won a Sony World Photography Organisation 2013 contest in 3D category, and won a Slovenia Press Photo award 2012. He was among the 6 finalists in the 2009 “Google Photography Prize” contest.
