Fotografii color cu Rusia Imperiala in 1900
Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii prezinta Rusia asa cum era ea in ajunul Primului Razboi Mondial.Intre 1909-1912 si din nou in 1915, Prokudin-Gorskii a calatorit prin tot Imperiul Rus documentand viata, peisajele si munca rusilor. Imaginile lui sunt adevarate file din istorie.¬†Fotografiile erau in alb – negru, dar el a dezvoltat o tehnica ingenioasa care ii permitea sa reproduca imaginile in culorile reale. A realizat asta cu o camera de fotografiat inteligenta, creata de el insusi, care facea trei fotografii negre apoi alte trei albe in secvente rapide, iar printr-un filtru special iesea o singura fotografie in diferite culori. Fotografia continea trei imagini diferite in trei culori, produsul final fiind o fotografie in culori clare. Sergei a reusit sa foloseasca un proiector cu care putea vedea pe un ecran toate cele trei imagini care se suprapuneau pina la culoarea finala.
