In 1948 the Danish photographer Keld Helmer-Petersen prefigured the work of Willam Eggleston and Stephen Shore by two decades with the aim to make pictures that would only work in color, and not in black and white. By concentrating on the mundane and the everyday 122 Colour Photographs deserves credit as a singular, remarkably early and largely successful attempt to make color photography work. Books on Books #14 presents Helmer-Petersen’s masterwork along with an essay by the historian Mette Sandbye called Colour Cool.
