Early colouring techniques were based on the traditional methods of craftsmen who hand-coloured images and defined an independent trend in the history of photography in Russia. This included ‘postcard’ landscapes and portraits as well as Soviet propaganda, avant-garde and reportage photography.

The exhibition is curated by the Moscow House of Photography and includes works by photographers and artists Dmitri Baltermants, Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii, Alexander Rodchenko, Ivan Shagin, Vladislav Mikosha and Boris Mikhailov. Primrose is part of Russia Visualised, a year-long presentation of visual arts and culture programming across London marking the UK Russia Year of Culture in 2014.
