“The
photographs of Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944) offer
a vivid portrait of a lost world– the Russian Empire on the eve of World
War I and the coming revolution. His subjects ranged from the medieval
churches and monasteries of old Russia, to the railroads and factories
of an emerging industrial power, to the daily life and work of Russia’s
diverse population.”
