So I was curious to see what Steve McCurry shot using the last roll of Kodachrome. Apparently he went traveling and shot most pictures in India. I am not sure how I feel about these pictures–perhaps I was expecting to be blown away? Considering it was the last roll of film, I was hoping to see more meaningful pictures rather than shots of a bunch of celebs. Anyway,that’s just me–you might feel otherwise. I have shared a few of the pictures I liked, especially the one in Istanbul with the backdrop of The Blue Mosque.
Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas, was the last lab on the planet to process Kodachrome and stopped developing the iconic film forever. When Kodak stopped producing the film, 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.
