The Empire That Was Russia

This is a collection of the photographs of Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944), which offer a vivid portrait of a lost world--the Russian Empire on the eve of World War I and the coming revolution. His subjects ranged from the medieval churches and monasteries of old Russia, to the railroads and factories of an emerging industrial power, to the daily life and work of Russia's diverse population.
