Keld Helmer-Petersen’s 122 Colour Photographs published in Copenhagen in 1948 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 remarkably early and successful attempt to put color photography on the map. Books on Books #14 presents Helmer-Petersen’s masterwork along with an essay by the Danish art critic and historian Mette Sandbye called Colour Cool.
