100 years ago… in Paris

Paris, France

This is a small sampling of Autochrome images made ​​in Paris between 1914 and 1918. The Autochrome process was developed by the Lumière brothers in 1903. The technique was based on a composite of black and white emulsions passed through a series of color filters (red, blue and green) designed based on potato starch (this technique was abandoned in 1935 in favor of the process Kodachrome, then Agfachrome the following year).
