Twilight of the Romanovs" opens a door onto the world of pre-revolutionary Russia in original photographs taken during the last decades of Romanov rule. They include many remarkable colour images created using an early three-colourplate technique; these bring the remote past to life with an especially vivid jolt. We discover a world of exceptional diversity seemingly timeless almost archaic marked by persistent poverty yet also abundantly rich and often surprisingly modern. These photographs are snapshots of a vanished world. The Russian Empire was soon to be destroyed and in the ensuing blood-soaked decades rendered unrecognizable. Yet these images reveal a surprising continuity: despite the subsequent cataclysm faces postures buildings and landscapes still resonate with those who see them a century and more later."
