Heinrich Kuhn

My sister recommend that I check out Heinrich Kuhn's autochromes.  I'm so glad that I did (and that she sent me the link).  Born in Germany in 1866, he became a doctor, moved to Vienna and fell in love with photography.  I like this story for so many reasons and I like his work even more. He was eventually awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Philosophy from the University of Innsbruck and died in Austria in 1944.
