The Wonderful World of Albert Kahn: Europe on the Brink
Documentary series about Albert Kahn’s photographic Archive of the Planet.
For a quarter of a century, Kahn supplied a team of photographers with the world’s first colour camera system and dispatched them across the globe. Their films and 72,000 photographs offer a unique insight into the formative years of the 20th Century.
When Auguste Leon visited Scandinavia in 1910, he found widespread deprivation and famine. In the Balkans he recorded the increasing volatility of Europe on the eve of war.
