John Rohrbach is the senior curator of photographs at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the author of Color: American Photography Transformed. Color tells, for the first time, the fascinating story of color's integration into American fine art photography and how its acceptance revolutionized the practice of art. Tracing the development of color photography from the first color photograph in 1851 to digital photography, Rohrbach describes photographers' initial rejection of color, their decades-long debates over what color brings to photography, and how their gradual acceptance of color released photography from its status as a second-tier art form. He shows how this absorption of color instigated wide acceptance of a fundamentally new definition of photography, one that blends photography's documentary foundations with the creative flexibility of painting.

"Eliot Porter combined childhood wonder, scientific insight, technical finesse, and artistic talent to create a new style of landscape photography, one built on quiet details rather than grand expanses, on color rather than light and shadow," says John Rohrbach, associate curator of photographs at the Amon Carter Museum.

"Color is so integral to photography today that it is difficult to remember how new it is or realize how much it has changed the medium," says John Rohrbach, senior curator of photographs.
...
When producing color photographs became commercially feasible in 1907 in the form of the glass-plate Autochrome, leading artists like Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) were initially overjoyed, according to Rohrbach.
...
"Although many commercial photographers embraced color photography over succeeding decades, artists continued to puzzle over the medium," Rohrbach explains.
...
"Eggleston revealed how color can simultaneously describe objects and stand apart from those objects as pure hue," Rohrbach says.
...
"Photography still gains its power and wide popularity today from its ability to closely reflect the world," explains Rohrbach, "but Color! reveals how contemporary artists have been using reality not as an end unto itself, but as a jumping off point for exploring the emotional and cultural power of color, even blurring of line between record and fiction to make their points.
...
A hardcover companion book of the same name written by Rohrbach and including an essay by the museum's conservator of photographs, Sylvie Pénichon, is available.
