Gallery: ‘Colour Photography before the Great War’ at Martin-Gropius-Bau

30 July 2014

Before the outbreak of the First World War, the French banker Albert Kahn commissioned a series of colour photographs and films from around the world. Martin-Gropius-Bau presents a selection of these remarkable images, which sought to promote understanding between different nations and cultures at a time when the world was heading inexorably towards conflict.
