From 1909 to 1931 the French banker Alberth Kahn sent out several photographers worldwide to document peoples lives in order to enhance the understanding between people. Many of the photos that resulted from the expeditions are color photos, so called autochromes. The legacy of Kahns project is an outstanding collection of  72,000 photographs and many hundred of meters of film. These form a unique historical record of 50 countries, known as "The Archives of the Planet".
