Mervyn O’Gorman – Early Autochrome Photographs

Mervyn O’Gorman was an early pioneer of photography in the days when colour was just coming in. Here we see a number of portraits of his teenage daughter, colourised with the autochrome process. We love the dreamy, somehow timeless feel of these photographs. Beautiful images!
