National Geographic, vol. XLI, no. 5, p. 472. (May 1922)
Author Stéphane Passet (1875-1942), on behalf of Albert Kahn (1860-1940)
From what i read on another site Albert Kahn hired photographer Stéphane Passet to take photos for him.
Looking at the national geographic magazine it states “In the land of Kublai Kahn Sixteen illustrations in full color, autochromes. Stephen Passett". There is no associated article with the photos.
A bit more info about Albert Kahn, the Archives of the planet and autochrome photography.
And here’s his complete archive of 65.083 stunning (color) photos of the world’s cultures 100 years ago.
For those unaware, Urga was the name previously used in the West for Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia.
So autochrome is real, authentic color?
Damn that chain around his neck looks heavy
