Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii (1863–1944) was a Russian photographer who undertook an abitious project of documenting the Russian countryside and people from 1905–1915. He used a method of creating color photography where 3 separate color plates were layered over the original. The photos show a fascinating glimpse into Russia on the eve of the 1917 revolution.
