Russia on Film
I found these images by Russian chemist and photographer (and artist!), Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii online a few years ago and was moved by the amazing people and the beauty of the country. Believe it or not, these photos were taken before WWI when color photography was just beginning. He had a train car converted to a dark room and traveled around the country capturing daily life through the eye of his camera. I hope you like them as much as I do. I can't wait to see this beautiful architecture and meet the amazing people of Russia! Enjoy.
