Late last year Kodak announced that it would produce Kodachrome, a magazine dedicated to art, culture and all things analog. Today, it has become available for sale to US residents on the company’s website.
Issue 01 is being published in a “limited edition run” and contains 76 pages of features, illustrations, and photographs. Kodak is serious when it says the magazine goes well beyond the world of analog photography and filmmaking — here’s a list of what stories you’ll find in the first issue:
- Chloë Sevigny on film, felines, shooting fairytales and taking the director’s chair
- Isaac Julien on the virtue of film for inspiring, making and preserving art
- Tad Carpenter on the power of the pencil
- Max McSimov on the beautiful truth behind folk songs – with the help of his Super 8
- Print is Dead is Dead: why independent magazine culture is booming
- The Hepworths: one of Europe’s most iconic art family dynasties laid bare
- Lost in Color: why the light, bright world of yellow is a lot murkier than it seems
- Music to Your Eyes: how gig posters bring out a designer’s most creative side
The first issue is available for purchase now in the U.S., but it won’t come cheap: you’ll have to pay $20 for this little piece of photo publication history from the Kodak online store.
