 Race Matters - Imperial Russia, Now In Color
N the dying years of imperial Russia, Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorsky undertook a great photographic experiment: commissioned by Nicholas II, Prokudin-Gorsky traveled the country from 1905 to 1915, documenting the sights, flavors and especially the people of the Russian empire, then displaying the results with an experimental three-color projector.
But as his crude technology, which relied on exposures for each color, fell into disuse in the last century, the photographs were accessible only as fl-and-white prints or as negatives of the individual color separations.
That world is on display in "The Empire That Was Russia: The Prokudin-Gorsky Photographic Record Recreated," an exhibition at the library.
