The Empire That Was Russia

Photographs from the first decades of the twentieth century may tell a thousand words, but color photographs from this period tell many more. The photographs of Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii, official photographer to Tsar Nicholas II, provide a vivid color history of life in Russia before the revolution. The patented camera and method Prokudin-Gorskii used to create color images is detailed on the site with his journal entries and the methods used to recreate the color images for the website exhibition. Part of the Library of Congress website, this exhibition is a real jewel. (ME)
