The exhibition Primrose - Russian Colour Photography ta kes place as part of Netherlands-Russia 2013. The title refers to the primr ose flower\, used metaphorically here to represent the many colours in whic h it appears during early spring. Primrose -Russian Colour Photography pres ents a retrospective of the various attempts in Russia to produce coloured photographic images. This process began in the early 1850s\, almost simulta neously with the discovery of the new medium itself. The colouring techniqu e\, based on the traditional methods of craftsmen who added colour into a c ertain contour design\, has determined a whole independent trend in the his tory of photography in Russia\, from 'postcard' landscapes and portraits to Soviet propaganda and reportage photography.

\n

The use of colour in Russia stems from the early 1850s and practically coincides with the in vention of the medium itself. The term colour photography is slightly disin genuous\, since at first it referred to a toning technique in which black a nd white photographs were painted by hand. Traditionally this technique was used by specialized tradesmen who added colour to the photographs accordin g to certain methods and within the contours of the image. This technique b ecame so popular that it started a trend in and of itself and to a large ex tent determined the appearance and aesthetics of colour photography in Russ ia. Initially used especially for portraits\, picturalist landscapes and nu des\, it later also found favour with avant-garde artists. Interestingly en ough these aesthetics also formed the starting point for Soviet propaganda and for portraits\, political leaders and reportage.

Primrose - Russian Colour Photography can be viewed as a journey through various techniques and genres\, meani ngs and messages\, mass practices and individual experiments. The exhibitio n contains works by renowned photographers and artists such as Sergey Produ kin-Gorsky\, Ivan Shagin\, Dmitry Baltermants and Robert Diament. But is al so shows unique photos of Alexander Rodchenko and Varvara Stephanova\, and recent works from the famous Luriki series by Boris Mikhailov\, in which he mocked the visual culture of the Soviet propaganda.

De titel 'Primr ose' verwijst naar de sleutelbloem die vanaf het vroege voorjaar in vele kl eurenschakeringen bloeit. Deze tentoonstelling biedt een overzicht van vers chillende soorten kleurenfotografie in Rusland. Het toepassen van kleur beg on in Rusland vanaf circa 1850\, vrijwel gelijktijdig met de uitvinding van het medium zelf. Het woord kleurenfotografie is in dit geval enigszins mis leidend omdat het aanvankelijk een inkleurings-techniek betrof waarbij (zwa rt-wit) foto's met de hand werden ingekleurd. Dit handmatig inkleuren van f oto's is kenmerkend voor de Russische fotografie. Aanvankelijk werd deze te chniek vooral toegepast in portretten\, landschappen en naaktstudies\, maar later ook door avant-garde kunstenaars\, in Sovjet propaganda en documenta ire fotografie.
