if you allow me, I would like to notify and consult with you the project I assigned myself for.
Background is that I have History seminar at the gymnasium I attend and we are supposed to make one project with presentation in the year. Since we are doing the era of Napoleonic wars to World War I, and nearing the end of century, I thought it would be perfect chance to enlighten the class (including the teacher..) about the magic of P-G colour photography. So, I asked and was given a permission to make commented presentation (since there is dataprojector with PC in the class) about Russian Empire on colour photos of Prokudin-Gorskii.
Therefore, I ask you if you have any tips what to include for sure, what would be priority. I will try to make it in Powerpoint (if it lags I might have to make separate presentations of the areas), unless there is something better? Any hints or advice will be more than welcome.
As of now I have a plan of dividing it in sections. This is my idea, which may be subject of change (depends on your opinions aswell):First
, shortest one will be photos, coat of arms etc. to accompany my speech about life of Sergey Michailovich.
Then I will, unless there are better ideas from you, start with the study on Skuritskhali river.
Continue with Second
, tour of southern Russia and Caucasus,Third
Turkestan, Bukhara, Samarkand Oblast
Then probably the most awaited and expected Fourth
part, Central Russia.Fifth
Urals and last
Grand Principality of Finland and Murmansk railroad.
From the reproductions definitely L.N.Tolstoy, maybe one of the two Shalyapins aswell.
Looking forward for the replies,
with kindest regards,
