The Library wishes to express gratitude to the following individuals for their assistance and expertise—Svetlana Garanina, Ksenia Volkova

The Library of Congress recognizes and appreciates the special contribution made to this exhibition by Walt Frankhauser, of WalterStudio™ Photography, Monrovia, Maryland. Mr. Frankhauser developed the complex digital process (called digichromatography) for rendering Prokudin-Gorskii's photographs in color.

The Library of Congress is especially grateful to William Craft Brumfield, Professor of Slavic Languages at Tulane University, for assistance with the Prokudin-Gorskii collection. Professor Brumfield was the curator of an exhibition of Prokudin-Gorskii photographs held at the Library from November 1986 through May 1987; this exhibition subsequently traveled to several venues across the United States.

Professor Brumfield is the author of several publications, including History of Russian Architecture; Gold in Azure: One Thousand Years of Russian Architecture; and Origins of Modernism in Russian Architecture. A gifted photographer, he donated photographs of Siberia and the Russian North to the Library for inclusion in “Meeting of Frontiers”—a joint U.S.-Russian online library project. His earlier photographs of Russia are on file at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
