Kodak Verichrome Rescue


A roll of completely exposed Kodak Verichome film from over 70 years ago sits waiting to share its secrets.


After wrestling the film from the spool and into a processing tank, the chemical process can begin.


Once dry, the film gives up a story told only in images.


Overlapping exposures from a possibly malfunction camera populate the strip.


Fogging from years of radiation cloud the frames and soften the pictures.

With just a few simple chemicals, the power and persistence of analog capture is demonstrated nearly seventy years later.

Kodak HC-110, Dilution B.  8 minutes.  Cold 62F.
