Matjaž Tančič: 3DPRK (signed)
3D portraits from North Korean people in 2014, by Beijing based Slovenian photographer Matjaz Tancic, in collaboration with Koryo Studio (representing North Korean artists and based in Beijing).
From Koryo’s site:
3DPRK is a collaborative project between Slovenian photographer Matjaž Tančič and Koryo Studio. The team of five (photographer, producer, two North Korean guides, one driver) photographed soldiers at the tense Demilitarised Zone at the North-South Korean border, and visited the schools, hospitals and newly completed leisure facilities considered the pride of the reclusive state.
Invited to document North Korea in 3D, Slovenian photographer Matjaž Tančič wanted to show something of the people who live there, stripped of rhetoric.It is the uniqueness and beauty of the 3D technique used for each photograph that ultimately highlights the individual nature of the people posing for each shot, and the various layers that make up the surreal theatrical set that is the DPRK today.
