Auguste and Louis Lumière

This is how the World looked 120 years ago.

Early photographs would have remained grainy and sepia-tinted had it not been for the outstanding work of Auguste and Louis Lumière who developed a technique they called Autochrome Lumière. The brothers revolutionized and dominated the world of colour photography until Kodak took things to a whole new level with the invention of Kodachrome film in 1935.
