Online Exhibition Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky. Photographic Postcards

The invention of photography changed the world forever. It not only opened the way for cinema, but
      also provided a serious competition for painting. However, more than a century ago, the very young
      photographic art could not cope with the function assigned to it. Looking at blurry, black-and-white
      photos, it is difficult to get into the spirit of the bygone era. Against their background, Sergei Prokudin-
      Gorsky color photos look even more unusual and brighter.
      The works of Prokudin-Gorsky were admired by Emperor Nicholas II, who instructed to provide the
      photographer with transport and sent him on an expedition around this country. Unfortunately, the
      outbreak of World War One made it impossible to complete that large-scale project. But still,
      a large number of portrait, landscape and genre photographs were taken. They give us a chance to see pre-
      revolutionary Russia in a different way: colorful and bright. Some of them have captured buildings
      thatwere destroyed during the war and revolutionary years.
      Most of the photos and negatives are currently stored in the Library of Congress, but they have been
      digitized and available for viewing on the website.
      In Russia, you can see original photos by Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky in the Multimedia Art Museum. Its
      collection includes forty postcards with his works.
      See details and view the exhibition materials on the museum's website.
      Where: Multimedia Art Museum at the address 16, Ostozhenka Street, Moscow.
      When: permanently
