Default A Personal Project on Kodachrome - Copywork

My last hours with Kodachrome were spent peering through a chimney finder with cable release in hand, hovering over a copystand equipped with a Nikon F3. The 55/3.5 non-AI Nikkor lens was stopped down to around f/11 and was focused one-by-one on some of the more important old photographs belonging to my family. The film which recorded the light used for copying these photographs was Kodachrome 40, type A, a long-discontinued variety of Kodachrome. Each time the lens was focused on a picture, that scene came to life in my mind. I was archiving the photographs onto Kodachrome. This was one of the many positive uses of Kodachrome.

Brilliant.

A "show of force": get the "Forever Kodachrome: 1935–2010" camera bag button-pin
"What was lost in Kodachrome was less about an object — film — and more about what one could create with that medium. Like taking oil from Monet."
