The early color photographs in the book are poignant and startlingly immediate, whether they depict cornflowers in a field of rye or a group of friends at a dinner party.

Rare and startling examples of early color photographs . . .

The color imagery is . . . haunting . . . cold stares coupled with bright clothes, and breathtaking landscapes . . . these are photographs that have not been highlighted in the eye of the public."

Eine sehr gute Auswahl von Fotos, vor allem die farbigen Autochrome von Prokudin-Gorsky sind beeindruckend. Ein gleichermaßen empfehlenswertes Buch für Liebhaber des alten Russland wie für Freunde der Fotografie.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A bit misleading 19. März 2013
Von cjwickenden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When I first saw this book online I assumed, incorrectly, that the book would primarily deal with the Romanovs. Instead I found maybe a dozen photos of the Romanovs in the entire book. It was interesting to see pictures of turn-of-the-century Russia but overall I was not impressed. The photos, however, were of excellent quality. But for anyone interested in photos of the family, I'd pass on this one. Not worth the $60 dollars I paid for it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Coffee table book on late imperial Russia 11. März 2013
Von A Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book offers a selection of photos taken all over the Russian empire from 1855 to 1917. Don't take the accuracy of the text for granted-Rasputin is described in one caption as a "wandering priest," which he was not. The research on the book seemed to be rather lax. The color photos in the book, taken using a 4-plate technique, were interesting. The quality of the photos in the book was consistently good, so if you're just buying it for the photos, you should be okay. I didn't think it was quite worth the cost.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Captivating 9. Juli 2013
Von Paul Richardson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The title of this captivating photo book is a bit misleading. The Romanovs are little seen beyond the first few dozen pages of this 250-page gallery. And that is as it should be. For this is a book more about the waning days of empire, about the millions of subjects who lived in medieval conditions and in abject poverty, about the far flung outposts of a sprawling assemblage of nations and peoples, about the clash between modernity and tradition, urban and rural. Indeed, the title of the book's introduction, "Images of a Vanished World," might have been more appropriate. But the use of "Romanovs" will surely sell more books.
Which is good. Because the more people who see this remarkable collection, the more will understand both the roots of the Russian Revolution and the devastation it wrought.

Blom and Buckley have mined the rich archives of Prokudin-Gorsky, Bulla, Howe, Kirchner and others to present over 300 incredible snapshots of late nineteenth and early twentieth century Russian life. The images are not presented chronologically, but geographically, beginning in St. Petersburg, looping through Central Asia and Siberia, and ending up back in Moscow - a bit like a modern photographic retrospective led by Alexander Radishchev.

Many of the images are haunting - like battlefield images from 1905 and a famous image of a road in the Crimean War, littered with cannonballs; but others are filled with detail and life - like a crisp shot of Lubyanskaya Square in 1902, or the images of street merchants. It is often difficult to tear yourself away.
The text is sparse, just introductions to various regions and a long historical preface, plus quotes from literature throughout, and of course very informative captions. But that is as it should be, because these pictures do a superb job of telling the story all by themselves.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Twilight of the Romanovs: A Phot graphic Odyssey Across Impwrial Russia'. 8. März 2013
Von Coralrose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I was expecting more pictures of the last Imperial Family since the first part of the title is'Twilight of the Romanovs.' The color pictures are all right, but I think B&W should have been in the whole book,instead of just partway. I thought it was sad to read about the peasants in one part of the book and then to show pictures of the palaces of the Tsars. but then again, how many books have different pictures of the Romanovs and peasants?

This book includes both a wonderful collection of old photographs during the last years of the Romanov dynasty in Russia, and illuminating text, organized by regions of the Russian Empire. For anyone interested in this period of history, a must-have!
