John Hinde was the first popular colour photographer. His work is finally being recognized as an artform as opposed to just a postcard. He started John Hinde Ltd. in 1956 and it is still successful today. For the generations that grew up in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, Hinde images are part of the fabric of memory. Their very vividness gives them a strange, dreamlike quality that provides mnemonic jolts and fleeting glimpses of lost time. Hinde postcards recast the times and places of the past as Technicolor daydreams. Like scenes from The Wizard of Oz, where Dublin or Southend-on-Sea has replaced the Emerald City, it is the intensity and quality of the colour that matters.
