Neon, Who's Afraid of Red Yellow & Blue?


Lomographers love to experiment shooting with lights, especially neons! La Maison Rouge in Paris is currently holding the first major international exhibition on the history of neon which was developed by French physicist and chemist Georges Claude a century ago!

Claude showcased neon tubes for the first time at the 1912 Paris World Fair. When neon was first invented, scientist Morris Travers said, “The blaze of crimson light from the tube told its own story and was a sight to dwell upon and never forget.”
