Details zum Buch
Introduced in 1935 as the first modern color film, Kodachrome was used extensively after World War II by amateur photographers. „Americans in Kodachrome 1945-1965“ is an unprecedented portrayal of the daily life of the people during these formative years of modern American culture. It is comprised of ninety-five exceptional color photographs made by over ninety unknown American photographers. Made as memoirs of family and friends, the photographs reveal a free-spirited, intuitive approach, and possess a clarity and unpretentiousness characteristic of this unheralded photographic folk art. Conceived as a book and nation-wide exhibition, Americans in Kodachrome 1945-1965 is an evocative and haunting portrait of an historic generation of Americans.
