    there's a photographer I think who lives ( lived? ) in Texas who makes autochromes. I see him on IG from time to time, you might be able to find him on that place that ends in "O" under the handle "photochemist".

    99% sure that Sheila Metzner didn't use the Autochrome process, but her images certainly had the "Autochrome look" to them. In the 1980s emulated the "Autochrome look" by shooting 35mm High Speed Ektachrome, processing it in C-41, and then making C prints.

    IIRC, Sheila Metzner's work was Fresson prints, not Autochrome.
