Sergey Prokudin-Gorskii (Russian: Сергей Михайлович Прокудин-Горский / Sergey Mikhaylovich Prokudin-Gorskiy, August 31, 1863, Murom - September 27, 1944, Paris) is one of the most important names in the history of photography. Born in Murom in Russia, Produkin-Gorskii studied chemistry. Working with renowned scientists Sankt Peterburg, Berlin and Paris, he developed the first techniques of color photography.

His main research was on patents on producing colorful film frames and filming. In 1905, he created new technological developments that were systematically used in the Russian Empire. In this project, the main aim was to teach school pupils in Russia to "reflect optical colors".

Developments in the project were about to be able to shoot black and white photographs of a photographer quickly, and each image depended on another color filter. Using 3 different black and white filter photographs, it could capture the real color light and create the original color system. The images from these shots looked like many "fanciful" images, while the pictures with lush red, green, and blue filters showed the person different each time.

He also managed to remove the colorful prints of the photos he took, but it was complicated and took a lot of time. It was a long time since his pictures were digitally combined into a single picture.

He visited the Russian Empire from 1909 to 1915, with a dark-room car given by Tsar Nicholas II, reaching everywhere in the empire with special permission. There was a long conversation on his paintings, and he left the country after the Russian Revolution of 1918 and continued his work in England, Germany and France.

His photographs showed live pictures of a lost world. Topics ranged from medieval churches, old Russian monasteries, railway stations to factory and developing industrial power, and the differences of the Russian people.

Produkin-Gorskii left Russia in 1918 and first settled in Norway and England and then in France (died in Paris in 1944). In this period, the Tsar and his family were killed in the Russian Revolution and the Communist regime took control of the Russian Empire. The unique pictures of Russia printed on glass tablets at the beginning of the revolution were purchased by the United States Library of Congress in 1948. -
