The Easel

A brief history of colour photography

Afficionados of colour photography will want more. For others, this piece usefully surveys who did what. Once Kodak developed Kodachrome film, pioneers in colour photography emerged. Some names are unfamiliar – Haas, Leiter, Christenberry. Eggleston looms large, widely seen as the person whose colour saturated images define the field. Missing is Vivian Maier whose reputation is skyrocketing, despite only recently being discovered (The Easel, Sept. 8).
