Video story Photo Collections of Vladimir Arseniev by Karina Solovyeva
The development of technology of photography allowed ethnographers in the late XIX - early XX centuries use this technology in expeditionary research of the country. The Russian Museum of Ethnography had an extensive network of correspondents who studied the traditional culture of the indigenous peoples of the territories remote from research centers. Photography has become part of this study and popularization through museums. Vladimir Arseniev (1872-1930), a major researcher of the Far East, sent portrait photographs of the aboriginal peoples of Primorye to the Russian Ethnographic Museum to create mannequin sculptures that reflect the features of their appearance, group photographs, camps, and migration scenes.
