A Farewell to Kodachrome


In 1935, the Kodak company began producing Kodachrome film, the first successfully mass-marketed color still film in the world. Renowned for its archival qualities and its ability to provide sharp images true to the photographer's intent, Kodachrome film has shaped the way we've looked at pictures, from LIFE magazine to Newsweek, from Playboy to National Geographic.

Because of the complexity of developing Kodachrome film, it was never possible for amateurs to develop this film. It had to be done in special processing labs, using specialized chemicals.

On December 30th, 2010, the last Kodachrome processing lab in the world will cease processing Kodachrome..

Before that happens, Stone will travel to the Four Corners — New England, the Florida Keys, the Pacific Northwest, and southern California — for a marathon, month long effort to capture iconic American images on an iconic American film stock for the last time... before delivering his film in person to the last Kodachrome lab in the world, in the American heartland of Kansas.

Give a few dollars, or give a lot. Help make this Photographer's big passion project a reality, before the chance slips away forever.

The travel portion of this project is over, the trip was amazing, the film has all been developed, and the images are incredible.  However the cost of scanning the images to digital to share with the world is high ($10 per image for a high quality printable scan) so there is a long way to go, please donate what you can, the following is a list of bonuses you get for donating.
