The Last Kodachrome Images

Steve McCurry
With the last roll of Kodachrome from Kodak's Rochester plant loaded into his Nikon F6, National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry headed east, intending to document visual artists like himself with the last 36 exposure roll of the discontinued film.

McCurry traveled from Rochester, NY to his home in Manhattan and then off to Bombay, Rajasthan, Istanbul, and London taking photos along the way and finally to Dwayne's Photo in Parsons, Kansas - the only lab on Earth that still processed Kodachrome. Dwayne's Photo stopped processing Kodachrome in December.

Check out all the great images he made on that last roll in this article in Vanity Fair.

For a background on the story, read our July, 2010 blog post.
