Really enjoyed David Burnett’s blog article ‘Adios Amigo’ about Kodakchrome, a link to which I posted on Tuesday. Also liked the below Newsweek gallery of photos taken on the film by different Magnum photographers….Didn’t know there was a colour ‘version’ of this black and white Bruce Davidson photo from (Port Talbot?) Wales…which was part of Davidson’s monograph Outside Inside, published by Steidl last year….

The same scene on Kodakchrome…

I wonder how common it was to shoot for instance both Tri-x and Kodakchrome simultaneously? Which one of Davidson’s photos do you prefer?
