About Americans in Kodachrome
So, amateur photographers used Kodachrome, first introduced in 1935 as modern colour film, extensively after World War II. Americans in Kodachrome 1945 – 1965 is a portrayal of daily life during these formative years of modern American culture. The book also contains 95 exceptional colour photographs. Made by over ninety unknown American photographers.
Like folk art in other mediums, this work is characterized by its frankness, honesty, as well as vigor. Made as memoirs of family and also friends, the photographs reveal a free – spirited, intuitive approach and possess a clarity and modest characteristic of this unheralded photographic folk art. Conceived as a book as well as a nationwide exhibition, Americans in Kodachrome is an evocative and haunting portrait of a historic generation of Americans. — Guy Stricherz
