The image above was taken by an unknown person in 1962 with a 35mm camera and Kodachrome film. Between 1945 and 1965, the color slide was the preferred method of taking pictures. We'd get out the Kodak Carousel projector, set up a screen and watch Uncle Joe and Aunt Fran, or photos of the kids taken on a summer trip to the mountains, or whatever. Editor Guy Stritcherz has put together an amazing chronicle of Americans during the post war years. He found the photos in private collections. There are 92 incredible images, rich in the intense color that Kodachrome offered. You'll probably recognize the people and situations simply because they are everybody. Notice the young girl above seems to be glowing from within, a situation caused by the lateness of the day and the golden light of the setting sun. If you are interested in photography I highly recommend this beautifully produced book. It's available at Amazon.com for $42.
