North Korea recently held its first ever photographic exhibition curated by Western artists. Matjaž Tančič, a Beijing-based photographer, was one of those allowed to exhibit his work, displaying a rare series of 3D portraits of North Korean people. Tančič travelled 500 miles through the country, looking to capture and document everyday life. The result is a striking collection of locals in restaurants, museums, hospitals, factories, farms and leisure parks, all of which are viewed through 3D glasses.
The collection has received international attention and just finished a two-month exhibition in the Pekin Fine Arts centre.
Tančič will screen his short documentary for the FCC which documents the behind-the-scenes progress of his project, as well as presenting his portraits, and discussing the challenges of documenting the lives of ordinary North Korean people.
