Refers to the Autochrome Lumière color photography process. Patented in 1903 by the Lumière brothers in France, the process uses a plate dusted with transparent grains of potato starch dyed red, green and blue. These starch grains act as tiny color filters, allowing light to affect a piece of film sandwiched behind the glass plate. Film is then reverse processed into a positive transparency.
