Abelardo Morell’s camera obscura

Last month’s National Geographic has a feature on Boston-based photographer Abelardo Morell, who sets up a room-size camera obscura and then photographs the results, which are astounding.

The National Geographic article has a few examples of his work, and his official site has many more.

The end of Kodachrome

National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry posts a tribute to Kodachrome:

Today is the day that Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas, the last lab on the planet to process Kodachrome, stops developing the iconic film forever. When Kodak stopped producing the film last year, they gave me the last roll. When I finished shooting the final frames, I hand-delivered it to Parsons. Here are a few of those last 36 frames.

I don’t think it’s fair for a photographer to create that many great shots on a single roll of film.

Also check out Alexis Madrigal’s Kodachrome gallery at The Atlantic. The New York Times also has a story.

East Germany then and now

Karlheinz Jardner visited East Germany in 1990 immediately after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and recounts the trip 20 years later. The photos from his original trip are not to be missed.
