Russia then and now: How has Russia changed over 100 years

More than 100 years ago, Russian photographer, public figure and inventor Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorsky set a goal to make color photographs that show what Russia looks like. He photographed a variety of people and places, using his own method of developing color photographs.

The photographer went on a tour of the Russian Empire, making a huge number of pictures, and fulfilled the task. Today these pictures have a special historical value.

A century later, not indifferent people tried to repeat these photos whenever possible, in order to compare what modern Russia and Russia of old times look like.
