As the modern Kodachromes have set the standards in 35 mm color photography for high-quality offset printing from the mid 1970s onwards, it is a great honor to meet one of its fathers here.

It is still a delight to look at such 25 - 30 year old photo books. And, even as I have started photography at the time when the green boxes showed up, the Kodachromes defined my perception of color rendition, not the jelly bean candy of the 1990s.

The monography on the cultural history of modern Kodachrome has yet to be written.
