Gallery: Kodachrome Is Dead, Long Live Kodachrome

The very last roll of Kodachrome film
will be delivered today in Parsons, Kansas. Kodak has slowly phased out
the materials needed to make and develop the film. Only a single
operation in the world — Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons — had continued to
develop Kodachrome.

First introduced in 1935, the death of the film stock has generated an
outpouring of emotion from several generations of photographers, for
whom the particular hues generated by Kodachrome define the look of
midcentury America. —Alexis Madrigal, The Atlantic
