Nostalgia by Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii

Color Photographs that Capture the Russian Empire of Czar Nicholas II in Unparalleled Vividness

As part of the European Month of Photography, Gestalten is pleased to present Nostalgia, a showcase of groundbreaking color images by Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii that document the Russia of Czar Nicholas II. This exhibit is the first to present such a wide selection of the color photography pioneer’s recently laboriously restored work in Europe. Prokudin-Gorskii developed his unprecedented technique—a method in which he used color-sensitive glass plates—decades before the widespread availability of color film. To reflect how Prokudin-Gorskii originally meant it to be seen and to best capture its vividness, Nostalgia will show his work as color projections.
