An earlier pioneer into colour and photography. His experiments documenting life and spaces in around the Russian Empire during the early 1900's used using three black-and-white exposures, with red, yellow and blue filters, which were then developed into separate screens that are then projected through to create the colour image. Now days his works have been scanned digitally to achieve the same effect in high resolution.

Albert Kahn -

In 1909 Albert Kahn travelled with his chauffeur and photographer, Alfred Dutertre to Japan on business and returned with many photographs of the journey. This prompted him to begin a project collecting a photographic record of the entire Earth. He appointed Jean Brunhes as the project director, and sent photographers to every continent to record images of the planet using the first colour photography, autochrome plates, and early cinematography. Between 1909 and 1931 they collected 72,000 colour photographs and 183,000 meters of film. These form a unique historical record of 50 countries, known as "The Archives of the Planet".
