GOODBYE
KODACHROME

The original little yellow box is no more.
Kodak has finally pulled the plug on
Kodachrome, one of the first colour
films to be available to the masses.

I was sad to hear that they have made a decision
the stop making a photography great after 74
years, used by myself many a time when I
still employed a 35 mm on a daily basis.

Kodachrome has had a special place in the hearts
of many photographers and was at its peak of
popularity during the 1950s and 60s. Today
it accounts for less than 1% of
Kodak's sales of film.


Kodak is currently running a collection by a number of
photographic greats (some of the images above
and below) and it's worth checking out

The Kodachrome project as well.
