French pioneer of cinematography and color photography with his younger brother, Louis. Although it is his brother Louis who is generally acclaimed as the "father of the cinema," Auguste Lumière also made a major contribution towards the development of the medium, He not only helped with the invention and construction of the cinematographer (the world's first camera and projection mechanism), but he made a number of improvements in photographic techniques.
Auguste unwittingly became one of the first film stars by appearing as a subject in many of the films shot by Louis. However, according to Louis, Auguste lost interest in the cinematographer as soon as construction had been completed, and thereafter showed no further interest in the film medium. An active biologist, he spent much of his later life working in a physiological lab clinic which he founded.
Lumiere died 4/10/1954 Lyon, France.
