I stumbled across an interesting Newsweek photo essay earlier today, which linked me to a Library of Congress exhibit. It's a collection of color photographs from Russia, taken between 1907 and 1915. Yes, I said color photographs!
The Library of Congress has chosen to highlight certain images, but there are certain many more to enjoy - some of which you can see in the Newsweek article, or by searching the LoC website. They're truly amazing photographs and there's some interesting details about how the photographs were taken and how they've been reproduced for our enjoyment today.
So check it out: 1907-1915 coloured Russian photography by Prokudin-Gorskii
