Vintage Photos Taken by Prokudin-Gorskii - First to Photograph in Color

(1/10) > >>

These pictures were taken by Prokudin-Gorskii, are any of these royalty?

That kind of looks like Nicholas and Alexandra.


Can someone tell me more about this photographer? I agree, these pictures do look modern..however, in my humble opinion,

1. Looks like Queen Alexandra
2. I am amazed at how much this woman resembles Princess Ingeborg of Denmark/Sweden!
3. The man is not right for Nicky, and the woman too short for Alix.
4. No idea!

Can't get over picture number 2...where did you find these pictures?

Margarita Markovna:
Yea where did they come from?

He is very famous photographer of the beginning of the 20th century. He was a war photographer too.
His photos of Russo-Japanese war are well known.

I think the first one looks very like Toria of Wales.
