Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky was a Russian chemist and photographer. He is best known for his pioneering work in color photography of early 20th-century Russia. In 1905-1915 he travelled the Russian Empire to catch the ethnical diversity of the country on film. His photographic heritage is a timeless and unique ethnographical treasure. More than one hundred years later, we want to celebrate cultural diversity of the world in the same lines as Prokudin-Gorsky once did. Globalisation slowly destroys the differences in lifestyles and even appearances of people. Let's show our artistic resistance to this trend and demonstrate how different we are.
- Quality pictures of people either posing for the photographer or caught in the act as close to Prokudin-Gorsky concept as possible (please look at the reference pictures for inspiration) - The subjects should point out the cultural uniqueness - Please provide the caption and description (preferably a story of the people in the frame) for your shots, including the location of the photograph
Imagine: someone looks at these photographs in 2120 as we do today Prokudin-Gorsky's heritage...
Low quality and not interesting photos will be rejected, we hope for your understanding.
