The last roll was shot by National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry, who shot the 36 exposures in New York and it will be processed by Dwayne's Photo Service of Parsons, Kansas, the only photo lab left in the world to handle Kodachrome processing.
Kodachrome, the slide-film that inspired songs, was discontinued by Kodak last year at 74 years of age. The colour emulsion was a victim of its own weird processing requirements, which didn't use the usual E6 chemistry designed for transparency film, and therefore wasn?t worth supporting in the age of digital.
