As already noted, in the first third of the 20th century, the world had several global projects to systematically capture on color photography rapidly disappearing cultures all over the World. The largest project was Albert Khan’s (70,000 color photographs taken in the years 1912-1932.). The second largest collection was done by National Geographic.
