Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky's photostream

Sergey was asked to photograph the wilds of Russia in the 1910's. He used a new form of color film that made three separate images based on the color scale. In other words, there was a picture that showed the yellows, one that showed the blues, and another that showed the reds. These pictures would combine to make the great pictures seen here.
