The Big Picture: Russia 100 Years Ago – In Colour


Russia in color, a century ago – The Big Picture –

A while back I opined that the best way to preserve Hollywood pictures was still to break the master print down to the 3 primary colours, and then make a Black & White film print of each.

On a tangent, the link above is from a photographer that did pretty much exactly that process on location….in Russia….a century ago!  Using modern tech, the 3 primary plates have been aligned to show stunning photos of life in Russia 100 years ago.  Fascinating…….

BTW, if you aren’t a regular visitor to The Big Picture, you should start.  It’s all stills, but if you need to recharge the old creative battery, it packs a pretty good jolt.
