Before HD there was Kodachrome…

This short film details the rise, prominence and fall of a one of a kind photo developing technology.

I find it fascinating because it was kind of like HD before HD. Colour’s were brilliant, texture was communicated through layers due to the unique emulsion method.

It was prominent with photographers and film makers but due to its long processing time not only during preparation but developing the film as well, Kodachrome was eventually surpassed.

It was a medium of the past that was as beautiful aesthetically as the equipment it was shot on and I for one will miss it.
