And these photographs keep me alive.

At one of my jobs I get to spend my time looking through slides and art books as part of an effort to develop a digital image collection. The priority has been photography, a type of art that  I appreciate but of which I have minimal knowledge. This morning I was completely blown away by these photographs taken between 1911 and 1926 by Jacques-Henri Lartigue.

To create this dream-like, painterly effect, he used one of the first color photographic processes: 'Autochrome Lumière' (it was developed by the Lumière brothers in France). I wish the memories of my life could be captured in fuzzy prints instead of the crisp digital realities of today.
