Last Saturday I popped into the Photographers Gallery to check out the Primrose exhibition which detailed the use of colour in Russian photography.

“Primrose showcases the appearance and development of colour in Russian photography from the 1860s to the 1970s. It presents both the history of Russian photography and the history of Russia in photography, depicting life over the course of a century, as the country endured unprecedented upheaval.”
