A picture of Alim Khan (1880-1944), Emir of Bukhara, taken in
1911. This is an early color photograph taken by Sergei Mikhailovivh
Prokudin-Gorskii as a part of his work to document the Russian Empire.
Three black-and-white photographs were taken through red, green and blue
filters. The three resulting images were projected through similar
filters. Combined on the projection screen, they created a full-color
image. This example is a simple color composite of the three original
images shown at right and has not been color-corrected, retouched, or
artificially enhanced in any way.
