Summary:"Introduced in 1935 as the first modern color film, Koda-chrome was
used extensively after World War II by amateur photographers equipped
with the new high-quality and low cost 35mm cameras. 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. These photographs
were chosen from many thousands of slides in hundreds of collections.
Like folk art in other mediums, this work is characterized by its
frankness, honesty, and vigor. 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."--BOOK
Notes:Includes index of plates and contributors.
The author gathered photographs made by amateur photographers across
the country and printed them using the Dye Transfer process.
