Acerca de


Discusses the history of the first practical color photographic process, shows examples, and explains the process.


Those who have no sense of photographic history--and think of color photography as having its origins in the 1930s or '40s--may be stunned into silence by this homage to the invention that revolutionized the art form at the turn of the century. John Wood presents a selection of the finest surviving examples of the autochrome process here, including the work of still life masters Heinrich Kuhn and Wladimir Schohin, the painterly Antonin Personnaz, and the now-forgotten Gervais Courtellemont, whose work was widely published in National Geographic in the '20s. Wood also showcases the efforts of pre-Revolutionary Russian writer Leonid Andreyev and American studio portraitist J. B. Whitcomb, whose autochromes were not discovered until the '70s and '80s; the find of Andreyev's autochromes (by archivist Richard Davies) is trumpeted by the author as "one of the most important photographic discoveries ever made."
