Photography in Paris

If you are interested in Autochrome Photography, the first color process
developed by Lumiere at the beginning of the 20th century, you should make a
trip by metro to the Albert Kahn Garden and Museum. Albert Kahn
commissioned photographers to travel all over the world to take photographs
that captured the global culture extant around 1910. Naturally, almost all
of these photographs were taken using the new Autochrome process. Although
most people go to the Albert Kahn Gardens and Museum to enjoy the gardens,
which are very nice, the exhibit of Autochromes is truly spectacular. It is
very easy to find because a Metro stop is only a short walk from the Albert
Kahn Gardens entrance. Photographs in full color from around the world,
circa 1910. Do not miss it !

This link will take you to a site with more information. Also, you can
search for Albert Kahn Jardin.
