3DPRK: 3D Portraits From North Korea
PLEASE NOTE: This event will be held at WeWork Dumbo Heights at 81 Prospect Street in Brooklyn.
Matjaž Tančič, a Slovenian photographer based in Beijing, will share images and a short video from the project 3DPRK at a special event in Brooklyn hosted by Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations and WeWork.
The portraits in this series are the first images of local people from across North Korea made using a 3D stereoscopic technique. This landmark collection shows not only the citizens of Pyongyang — North Korea’s showcase capital — but also farmers in the fields of co-operative farms, residents of Hamhung (North Korea’s second largest city) and factory workers.
The collaborative project, done with support from Koryo Studio, included a team of five (photographer, producer, two North Korean guides, and one driver) as Tančič photographed soldiers at the tense Demilitarized Zone, and visited schools, hospitals and and other sites across the country.
3D viewing glasses will be provided. Tančič will take questions following the event.
Complimentary beer and snacks will be available.
RSVP is required. Free admission.
