Life Under The Tsar


At the start of the 20th century, photographer Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorsky won the support of Tsar Nicholas II to conduct an ambitious photographic survey of the Russian Empire. Between 1907 and 1915, Prokudin-Gorsky traveled widely in a railroad car equipped with a darkroom, recording the vast diversity of Russia's culture.
