The Empire That Was Russia

offers photographs of the Russian Empire on the eve of World War I and the coming revolution. Medieval churches and monasteries, railroads and factories, and daily life and work of Russia's diverse population are among the subjects. The photos were taken by Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944), who, in the early 1900s, formulated a plan for a photographic survey of the Russian Empire that won the support of Tsar Nicholas II.
