I was doing a little internet research on autochromes and sort of felt like I'd fallen down the rabbit hole. There are so many sites and so much information it can be a bit overwhelming. I know back in the infancy of the blog (way back in '08!) I did a blog post about autochromes based on the Belgian Autochromists site. If you haven't fallen down that rabbit hole before, I highly recommend it. But since then nary a word about them so I thought it was high time that I shared by favorite collection of autochromes in case you hadn't seem them before.
The images were captured by Lieutenant Colonel Mervyn O’Gorman, a distinguised Aeronautical engineer, of his daughter Christina at and near Lulworth Cove in Dorset, in 1913. Don't they look like they could be right out of a modern day editorial?
