Although he was a banker rather than a photographer his role in using colour photography and film to document the planet left a profound legacy. Following a visit to Japan with his chauffeur and photographer, Alfred Dutertre, in 1909 he funded a project using a variety of photographers to document over 50 countries between 1909 and 1931 creating an archive of 72,000 colour photographs and 183,000 meters of film.
