The Eastman Kodak Company introduced Kodachrome color film in 1935.  It has been the film used for many iconic photographs over the last 75 years including Steve McCurry’s photograph of an Afghan girl at Nasir Bagh refugee camp in Peshawar, Pakistan, in 1984.  When Kodak produced the last rolls of Kodachrome film some were donated to the George Eastman House’s photography museum and one was given to Steve McCurry to shoot.  McCurry shot part of the roll in New York City and part in India.  NPR has a slide show of some of McCurry’s last Kodachrome images here.

    It is amazing how much has changed in just the last ten years.

    Definitely. I never did much film shooting and generally used Fuji when I did. But this is a bit of an end of an era.
