Christina In Red From 1913 With 8 Photos
These photos were taken in the early 1900s with Autochrome Technique which was a colorful photography technique, developed by Lumieré Brothers and became popular in those years. Photographer is Mervyn O’Gorman. And the girl in the red is Christina. When we go deep into this technique, it begins with covering glass plates with red, green and blue colored potato starch as skimpy mosaic pieces. Main purpose of the starch is to fulfill a light sensitive filter duty on emulsion. Emulsion layer which is prepared during the process first turns into a black-and-white positive view. Then, process of coloring begins. Coloring with Autochrome has lasted till 1930s and it has ended because of debut of colorful films and presses.
