Photography book/Images on Kodachrome

A Floridian photographer's chronicles his state during the 80s using Kodachrome film, and gathers the images in a book titled A Peculiar Paradise. Read it here in the Washington Post!

The Kodachrome part of this is simply marketing... the images are interesting without the mention of the film type.

I doubt that, since Kodachrome doesn't exist anymore. The images have that characteristic Kodachrome look of a certain decade (there were various KCs) that is simply transcendent, at least to my eyes. I have never seen anyone reproduce that look successfully any other way, especially not digitally (and many have tried).

That is a weird collection of photos. I'll bet that if you saw them projected there would be a lot more Kodachrome there. Good stuff though.

If one is specifically interested in Kodachrome images, simply look at any National Geographic prior to 2009 when Kodak quit making Kodachrome. They used it almost exclusively. BTW, there have been some pretty good photos in National Geographic over the years.

My dermatologist, actually a very good photographer, has a collection of old National Geographics from the mid 50's to around 10 years ago in his waiting room. Best reading material of any of my doctors.

That`s exactly why people are nostalgic for it.
