Foucault, Colour Correction & The Autochrome

In the early 1900's, the Autochrome photographic production process utilized an additive colour process on glass plates, the procedure used coloured potato starch as a grain layer and created fantastic image results that give the impression of being a painting. Aotg.com investigates this early process through a discussion with John Wood, author of The Art of the Autochrome: The Birth of Colour Photography.

In this episode, of Aotg.com Presents Ideas, John and I discuss the potential of the Autochrome today. Ideas/AOTG.com follows-up the interview with an authority from France who found the machines the Lumiere brothers used over a century ago. After repairing the machines, he uses them to recreate the colour process. The complex and demanding project led to these modern day Autochromes, from France.
