Capturing colour

I visited the Capturing Colour: Film, Invention and Wonder exhibition at Brighton Museum and Art Gallery today. If you're planning a trip to the Sussex coast before 20 March, it is well worth a visit.

Tracing the history of colour in early photography and then into film, it takes you though all the technological advances from early monochrome tinting right through to capturing colour motion on mobile devices today. A fascinating story that, in equal measure, is a display of the technical, the scientific and the artistic.

It also has the potential to be one of an important double bill of motion/photographic exhibitions if you also take in the Moving Portraits show at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea, an hour down the coast by car from Brighton. I'm hoping to visit that tomorrow.
