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 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.

The exhibit will be on display through February 26, 2017.
