Jean-Baptiste Tournassoud

I spend quite a bit of my time peering at old photographs. There's nothing better than an old image for capturing days gone by. This French photographer has captured the end of an era with his. This scene is part of a series of autochromes capturing the French army on the eve of the Great War in all their colourful old world glory. His scenes of country life are a treasure too.
