Kodachrome Taken Away

In 2009, Kodak announced that it would stop producing its iconic Kodachrome film after nearly 75 years in production.

Famed photographer Steve McCurry (the man who photographed the Afghan Girl for National Geographic — on Kodachrome!) asked to be given the last roll of Kodachrome off the assembly line. Kodak agreed. Then National Geographic followed McCurry as he shot those last 36 exposures.
