Hallo, ich bin Erik featured in Monopol's September issue.
Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii
Images by Russian chemist and early pioneer of color photography, Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863–1944), are on display in a group photo show themed on color. Taken for the series Russian Empire, 1909–1915, commissioned by Czar Nicholas II, his photos document the vast empire with the unprecedented technique he had developed—a method in which he used color-sensitive glass plates—decades before the widespread availability of color film. His color images were not only meant to document the diverse citizens, ethnicities, settlements, folklore, and landscapes of a vast empire, but to create nothing less than a common identity for its populace. The show runs until December 15th at Upon Paper Space.
Gestalten recently published over 250 of these early masterpieces of color photography, which have been laboriously restored by the Library of Congress, in the 320-paged monograph Nostalgia. The book is available in English and in German language, both featuring a beautiful linen hardcover, and was awarded gold at the German Photobook Awards 2013. A selection of images from the Nostalgia book are available as fine art prints. Purchase here.
