The Early 20th Century through the Eyes of Autochrome
Posted by Jay at 12:29 PM
The previous posts on Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky and Albert Kahn and their early 1900 color photographs opened up a world that looked real yet fantastical to many readers, so here are a few more examples of the early 20th century as seen through the eyes of the Autochrome camera.
For more great examples of the early 20th century world as seen through Autochrome cameras, check out World War One Color Photos; it has exactly what it says. This page for "100 Years of Autochrome" exhibition at the Šechtl and Voseček Museum of Photography also has some images. The website of photographer Jean-Baptiste Tournassoud has some Autochrome pictures of World War I. Finally, this Flickr set from the George Eastman Autochrome Collection also has some very good examples.
