My Kodachrome T-Shirt


Kodak took our Kodachrome away and I have not even shot a single roll. Since it seems impossible to get a roll and send it to Dwayne's Photo, I decided to create a T-shirt in honor of this unique emulsion.

Kodachrome T-shirt

I was desperately trying to buy some rolls of this special emulsion so I can still send the films to Dwayne's but I remained unsuccessful. I decided to print a T-shirt of the Kodachrome logo instead.

It was almost impossible to find a suitable picture for vectorization on the internet, so in the end, I redesigned it myself. And since I could not decide between the two of them, I would like to share both:

    So how does one save/view/manipulate a SVG file? I want my own version of that!

  23. floriansimon
    floriansimon ·

    save: there are so many options, but the simplest might be to right-click on the link and click "Save as" or "Download"
    view: in a modern web browser like "safari", "google chrome" or "firefox"
    manipulate: for example "inkscape" (open source) or "illustrator" (by adobe)

    Wide-Angle Trio: So Simple, So Different

    Speakers' Corner: Interview with Photographer Philip Wolmuth

    Having a respectable career photographing social, political and economical matters, Philip Wolmuth is capable of starting a dialogue with the public via his thought-provoking photographs. Going through the collective of images on his latest work, it seems impossible not to be instantly affected by the rawness of the emotions captured within the images. The passion, the anger, the commotion, the rebellion, the fervor, the shouting, the devotion; his work is inebriating. It's as if the images are screaming at you and, for a short while, you are transported to the Speakers' Corner without actually setting foot on that location.

    'Aniki-Bòbò': A Tribute to Manoel De Oliveira

    This article is a tribute to the great Portuguese film director Manoel de Oliveira, who died last April 2. With an old Praktica loaded with a roll of black and white film, I captured so enthusiastically his city Oporto (Porto) with its famous Ribeira district, the most characteristic of the Lusitanian town. It was here that more than 70 years ago, Manoel De Oliveira created a timeless masterpiece: "Aniki-Bòbò"!
