oct 12, 1861 - Thomas Sutton & James Clerk Maxwell (England / Scotland)

Description:

They collaborated to take three separate exposures of a tartan ribbon through red, green and blue filters.

The developed negatives were projected through separate magic lanterns, with the same coloured filters, on to a screen to create a single image at the Royal Institution in London and the principle of colour photography was born.
