Kodak House Hobart by Brett Rogers

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This shot is of Kodak House, which is definitely one of the more interesting 20th Century Buildings in Hobart’s Elizabeth Street Mall.

I bought two rolls of Kodachrome 64 in mid-2010. Kodachrome was the world’s first commercially viable and successful colour film, introduced by Eastman Kodak in the mid 1930s. I had to expose and then send the films off to Dwaynes Photo in Parsons, Kansas, by 30th December 2010.

Dwaynes operated the last Kodak K-14 process film laboratory in the world. Early 2010 they announced that, on or around 30th December that year, due to Kodak’s decision to cease manufacture of Kodachrome film and the dyes needed to colour it during processing they would end K-14 processing services.

Camera: Canon EOS RT 35mm SLR.
Lens:Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Mark I prime lens.
Film: Kodak Kodachrome 64 35mm transparency.
Development: Standard Kodak K-14 processing service by Dwaynes Photo, Parsons, Kansas, USA.

    Could become a valuable photo eh?
    Nice seeing some of your Kodachrome work.

  • Well, it’s valuable to me. I believe the building pre-dated the introduction of Kodachrome, so whilst I am sure many images of it have been made with various versions of Kodak’s famous film, this was undoubtedly the last. It’s one of the more interesting 20th Century buildings in Hobart and seemed an entirely fitting subject for a couple of frames. Having said that Kodak’s film division is still profitable for them; it’s been the companys management and poor decision making that have largely led to its current woes.

    Thanks for your comment. I shot two rolls of Kodachrome 64 in 2010. Not every shot was a winner but I have a few more images to roll out.

    Incredible building, and amazing, amazing colour! Kodachrome 64 is such a well, historic, film!

  • Francesca, thank you so much for your lovely comment, and please forgive me for not replying sooner, I simply missed seeing your kind words here until now, but they are surely appreciated! I still miss Kodachrome…

    Brett, Lovely to see such an array of colors with my favorite film “Kodachrome”. I still listen to the Paul Simon song all the time too.

  • Dear James,
    forgive me, please, for missing your comment as I am very late replying. And thank you for commenting mate. Paul Simon is one of my favourite musical artists, actually I was only playing the Concert in Central Park live album a couple of days ago, I never get tired of listening to it and yes Kodachrome is one of the songs they performed. I couldn’t possibly have exposed a couple of rolls of it, without including an image of this wonderful legacy to the incredible contribution Kodak made to photography.
