PHOTOGRAPHY | 3DPRK by Matjaž Tančič
Trudge into the alleys of suburban Pyongyang through the lens of Slovenian photographer Matjaž Tančič as he bridges the gap between the unfamiliar and the world outside. Tančič adopts a 3D stereoscopic technique that requires each subject to stand motionless for minutes, while multiple photographs capture the requisite perspectives. Be sure to catch his landmark '3DPRK' series to get a glimpse into the intimate lives of North Koreans.
