Prokudin-Gorskii (RUS/ENG)

Samenvatting

Photographer Sergei Prokudin-Gorskij takes us to the Russia of the beginning of the twentieth century. The time before the revolution.

Tolstoi is still alive and you can still meet them in Russia, the main characters of the great works of the Russian literature. Prokudin-Gorskij  registers them, in colour!

Prokudin-Gorskij was a real professional who acquired  his knowledge of colour photography in Berlin during the late eighties of the nineteenth century and took it to Russia. Between 1905 and 1915 he travels through the extensive Russian Empire under often very difficult circumstances. He follows the Volga, travels to the Caucasus and Central-Asia.

He registers the changes in the empire  and the development of the old feudal Russia, on the way to the new industrial society. We see the cultural inheritance, portraits of the inhabitants, architecture and landscapes. A world coming to life through the beautifully composed photographs of Prokudin-Gorskij, but moreover because of the technical process  making this world coming to us in all its magnificent display of colour.
