Online Exhibition Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky. Photo Postcards

Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky was a pioneer of color photography in Russia, a man thanks to whom priceless images of pre-revolutionary Russia have come down to us.

      Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky invented a color camera and a powerful sensitizer that enabled him to capture an entire era in color photos. Having traveled around many cities and villages of this huge country, he managed to create a real encyclopedia of Russian life of the early 20th century.

      He is the author of the color portrait of Leo Tolstoy, photographs "Alim Khan", "Young Russian peasant women near the Sheksna River", "Dagestan Women", "The View of Sukhum", and others.

      Lots of architectural monuments that have been lost can be found only in photographs by Prokudin-Gorsky.
