A Rich Dude That Spent His Money Taking Pictures Of The Entire World
Albert Kahn was an extremely wealthy French banker.
In 1907 color photography was invented with the use of a process called autochrome.
Beginning in 1910, Albert paid photographers to travel and take autochrome photos of everyday life across the globe.
For the first time in history, we could see each other in true-to-life color.
The photographers collected a total of 72,000 images between 1910-1931.
Wow...thank you Albert Kahn...these photos are a glimpse into the history of all of us.
Here are some samples...but you should really check out more.
