Veniamin Metenkov

  
Veniamin Leontievich Metenkov (1857-1933) was a founder of photography in Urals. He started his business in Ekaterinburg in 1896 by setting a photo-studio. He did much to introduce Ural's beauty and life of contemporaries. A great collection of his photoes includes excellent landscapes and pictures of Ekaterinburg at the time. At present  we've got a museum  devoted to Metenkov and his activities. It is situated in Ekaterinburg in a house where former Metenkov's studio used to be.
