We imagine the past in black-and-white, but Mervyn O’Gorman was taking color photos using glass plates coated in potato starch in 1913. The technical name for this process is autochrome, and O’Gorman used it to take beautiful pictures of his daughter Christina wearing red in the British countryside. As the photos contain little to give their era away, they seem to be from no specific period; in fact, they almost weren’t taken at all.
