Color photos of the Russian Empire

We suggest for you to look at other Russian. These color photos were made in the period between 1909 and 1912 by photographer Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorsky (1863 — 1944). Photographer took a tour of the Russian Federation with the support of Tsar Nicholas II. To shoot, he used a special camera. The camera shoots three successive black-and-white image with virtually no breaks, a reddish, greenish and blue filter. To view these photos was used projector with 3 lenses arranged in front with 3 shots on the plate. Each frame was projected through the filter of the same color as the one through which he was shot. When adding three images (reddish green and blue) to display a full color image came out. Thanks to the high quality photos of breathtakingly amazing and eye-catching colors is hard to believe that these pictures were taken a century back, before the October Revolution, and even before the First World War. We want to invite you to look at the mind-blowing selection of photos that are in the Library of Congress, which acquired them in 1948.
