Idyllic color photographs of Ireland 1927

Adams used an early form of color photography called AVTONOMNYY process, patented in 1903 by the famous Lumiere brothers. In autochrome applied a layer of microscopic granules of potato starch dyed in red, green and blue. They worked as filters.Autochrom required a longer exposure than the black-and-white pictures. The photos are often somewhat vague and shadowy. And the distribution of colors in puantilistskie manner reminiscent of the impressionist paintings.By 1938 from autochrome virtually abandoned in favor of Kodachrome.When Adams came to Ireland, the country was still in the process of rebuilding after the civil war and the division of the island into Northern Ireland (as part of the United Kingdom of great Britain) and the Irish Free state.The great famine in Ireland 1842-1852 claimed the lives of 500 thousand to 1.5 million people. At that time, many residents left the country, going to USA, Canada and other places. In 1926 the “emerald Isle” lived at least three million people.Photography: Clifton R.
