from russia with love : photography : sergei mikhailovich prokudin-gorskii

Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii

these are part of an amazing collection of photos by sergei mikhailovich prokudin-gorskii, take in russia more than one hundred years ago. they were taken with a special camera in black and white, but but each photo was taken 3 times, each with a coloured filter and when projected together they give these near to perfect images. it is hard to believe that these are not new photos, this was even before the first world war. via the boston globe
