How Steve McCurry chose the final 36 photos taken with Kodak’s legendary Kodachrome film
Photographer Steve McCurry built a career shooting with Kodak’s fabled Kodachrome film, capturing thousands of mesmerizing images during his tenure at National Geographic with “Afghan Girl” at the top of that list. So when McCurry asked Kodak for the last roll of Kodachrome that would ever come off the line in 2009, the company was quick to grant his request. Despite having shot with the film — which he describes as “the best rendition of reality” thanks to its punchy colors — for 30 years, McCurry still found choosing the final 36 images to be a tall order.
