Surreal Life

The National Media Museum in Bradford is currently running an Autochrome exhibition to mark 100 years of colour photography. Similar to this, the Autochrome method of photography is both stunningly surreal and hauntingly reminiscent of pre-raphaelite art. Unfortunately, the art of making Autochrome plates seems to have been lost, but you can create your own using Photoshop.

Great stuff, thanks.

I believe those color photos from the first World War that make the rounds every now and again are autochromes.

Gives you those nice, bright colors... the greens of Summer...
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah.
