Kodak's Last Roll Of Kodachrome Has Been Processed
By Jonathan Poet
The last roll of Kodachrome slide film to come out of a Kodak factory has been shot and processed, according to The Wichita Eagle. Steve McCurry, a freelancer who may be best known as the photojournalist who shot National Geographic's "Afghan Girl," got Kodak's permission to be the person to shoot it. McCurry took photos in India, New York and Kansas, home to the last Kodachrome processor on the planet, Dwayne's Photo Service.
National Geographic is documenting the film roll's journey. Kodak's museum will get the 36 resulting slides. Dwayne's will stop processing Kodachrome in December.
