Presentation Transcript


Photographer Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944) undertook a photographic survey of the Russian Empire with the support of Tsar Nicholas II. He used a specialized camera to capture three black and white images in fairly quick succession and then using red, green and blue filters recombined the images to produce color photos that were ahead of there time. The high quality of Gorskii’s pics make it difficult for viewers to believe that they are looking 100 years back in time



Russian Empire

The Russian Empire was a state that existed from 1721 until the Russian Revolution in 1917. It was the second largest contiguous empire in world history, surpassed only by the Mongol Empire, the third largest empire the British Empire. At one point in 1866, it stretched from eastern Europe, across Asia, and into North America. By the end of the 19th century the size of the empire was about (8,600,000 sq mi) or almost 1/6 of the Earth\'s landmass.
