‘Whoever has tried it will not want to do anything else.’ So declared French photographer Albert Londe after first using the autochrome, the revolutionary colour photography process released in 1907. Invented by the Lumière brothers, the autochrome was quickly embraced by all quarters of the photographic community, not least the American Pictorialist Alfred Stieglitz, who proclaimed, ‘soon the world will be color-mad’. Such is their fragility, however, that autochromes cannot be exhibited. Drawing on the Victoria and Albert Museum’s world-class collection, Colour Mania thus offers a rare opportunity to experience the rich variety of autochromes produced in the two or so decades in which the process had photographers entranced.
