A dye transfer print photograph of a woman in a spotted dress next to a sundial, taken by an unknown photograph, c. 1955.

The woman looks over a garden and out to sea. The photograph was used to advertise Kodak Ektachrome film. The dye transfer process was introduced in the 1930s. Black and white colour separation negatives are used to expose matrix films which are dyed cyan, magenta and yellow. The final print is made by superimposing these dyed images in perfect registration.
