In our recent publications we told about the amazing Russian photographer Prokudin-Gorsky (the official photographer of Russian empire) who had a special technology of making three different shots and then combining them into one colour image. So at that time that was the first coloured photo art about Russia. But not the only one.
At the beginning of the XX century another Russian photographer, Sergey Ivanovich Borisov, during his expedition across mountain areas of Altai (1907-1914) made more than 1000 photos later on used as material for coloured post cards of various European publishing offices. Here is the part of them.
