Default Hundred-Year-Old Russian Color Photos

Thanks to my photographer friend Andy Frazer for this link...

The Incredible Century Old Color Photography of Prokudin-Gorsky: In 1909 a remarkable project was initiated by Russian photographer Sergey Mikhaylovich Prokudin-Gorsky. His mission was to record - in full and vibrant color - the vast and diverse Russian Empire. Here, with his story, is a selection of his amazing century old full color pictures.
