    The George Eastman House has some Autochromes on their flickr page at http://www.flickr.com/photos/george_...7606226772243/ that have to be seen to believe!

    Yes, I've seen modern examples of this. A few people on the Yahoo Zenit camera group got interested and experimented with this process and posted their results a couple of years ago. The caveats mentioned by 2F/2F still apply, of course.

    FWIW, I used one of Prokudin-Gorskii's images (this one, from the original LOC site) as my desktop background for a while, back around 2000.

    10 years ago?

    Hmmm, that makes me wonder why on APUG, site gathering passionate photographers, bunch of Prokudin-Gurski's images is treated like a hot news (although it's well known since couple of years).

    It turns out it wasn't quite that long ago, just 9 years -- but in my defense, I did say "around 2000." From the Wikipedia article on Prokudin-Gorskii:

    In 2001, the Library of Congress produced an exhibition from these, The Empire That Was Russia: The Prokudin-Gorskii Photographic Record Recreated.
    I recall learning of the LOC site soon after it was created.

    It's "hot news" here today because of the Boston.com article referenced in the first post. The first paragraph of that article says it was inspired by the recent wildfires in much of Russia.

    Ric,

    You are not the first one with this misconception. The origins of natural colour photography are commonly located at the year 1861.

    Spread within Apug you'll find a lot of postings on early natural colour processes as well as hints to english language literature on that issue.
    A good introduction may be "Colour Photography" by Brian Coe from 1978

    to tell you the truth, that all looks like chromatic aberration to me, and that would make sense for back then
    What is one to do as one watches humanity slowly destroy itself?
