Color Photographs From 1907 :: Autochrome and Pictorialism

May 10th, 2015

Episode 100 of 330 episodes

Autochrome Lumière was one of the first commercially available color processes. There were earlier processes, but Autochrome was very refined and "realistic" for the technology at the time. Using grains made of potato starch, these grains produced a 3 color space of Orange, Green and Violet to reproduce color. In the early years, Pictorialists embraced Autochrome and were fascinated by its results. But quickly, pictorialists rejected it because of its mechanica, "pre-made"l process and lack of hand control over the chemicals and techniques involved. Autochrome was produced until the 1940's, but its early years were the most interesting and prolific among photographers in the art world.
