Kodachrome: The End of an Era – 1935 to 2010

Steve McCurry blogs about the last frames shot, on the last roll made, of what I also considered to be the World’s best colour film, Kodachrome:

‘Today is the day that Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas, the last lab on the planet to process Kodachrome, stops developing the iconic film forever. When Kodak stopped producing the film last year, they gave me the last roll. When I finished shooting the final frames, I hand-delivered it to Parsons. Here are a few of those last 36 frames’- Steve McCurry
