The World c. 1914. Colour photography before the Great War

This exhibition is devoted to the hitherto almost forgotten colour photographs and films which were made before the First World War, having been commissioned by the French banker Albert Kahn.

Inspired by the colour photography of the Lumière brothers, he issued these commissions – at a time when the nations of Europe were already arming for the Great War – to photographers of both sexes, in order to build up the Archives de la planète with colour photos from all over the world. In this picture archive over 70,000 colour shots have been preserved.
