Although colour photography was around prior to 1903, the Lumière brothers, Auguste and Louis, patented the process in 1903 and developed the first colour film in 1907. The French army was the primary source of colour photos during the course of World War I, however, the famous Australian official photographer, Frank Hurley also experimented with colour photography..
The following gallery is part of our ever growing collection of Australian and international World War I photography, painstakingly hand coloured and restored. Each high resolution image takes between 1 day to 1 month to complete, and the attention to detail in the colouring process achieves results far superior to automated recolouring techniques.
