Kahn, Prokudin-Gorskii, Miethe
The World c. 1914

21 ottobre 2014

Una mostra che commemora l’inizio della prima guerra mondiale con un’ampia selezione di foto a colori tratte dalle più importanti campagne dell’inizio del XX secolo: The World c. 1914 – Colour Photography Before the Great War presenta moltissimi scatti da Les Archives de la Planète, la missione creata dal filantropo Albert Kahn proprio alla vigilia dello scoppio del conflitto. Kahn voleva utilizzare la fotografia come messaggio di fratellanza universale, per promuovere l’immagine di un unico popolo proprio nel momento in cui la guerra prendeva il sopravvento. Accanto alle autocromie (il procedimento brevettato dai fratelli Lumière nel 1903), la mostra propone estratti dalla documentazione del paesaggio tedesco ad opera di Adolf Miethe, che ricorreva alla tecnica delle tre esposizioni usando per ognuna un filtro con uno dei tre colori primari, e testimonianze dal lungo viaggio attraverso l’impero russo di Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky, realizzate utilizzando la stessa tecnica perfezionata da Miethe.
