1914 – The World in Colour

Share:

"The 1914 – The World in Colour" exhibition brings to light a treasure trove from a long lost world. At the heart of the display are virtually forgotten photographs and films of French banker Albert Kahn. Delighted with the colour photography processes developed by the Lumière brothers, he commissioned photographers to create the "Archives de la Planète" with colour images from around the world, at a time when Europe was arming itself for a great war.

The presentation includes colour photographs from the Russian Empire taken by Sergei M. Prokudin-Gorskii, the great "Images from the German Colonies" project, and the "Kaiserpanorama", with 3D colour images that are still considered fascinating today.  

Hatje-Cantz-Verlag is publishing a catalogue to accompany the exhibition, which includes over 100 large-format pictures.
