“In 2011, a processing facility in Kansas, the last to process Kodachrome,discontinued the K14 developing process. The historical stock became obsolete. In 2010, I photographed 14 rolls of Kodachrome 16mm, which had been stored since 1986. The stock was developed, in the last batch of footage processed. The resulting film is AMERICAN COLOUR. The film was photographed over a week while traveling to Kansas from the birthplace of Kodachrome in upstate New York. In the wake of the obsolescence of Kodachrome the footage is used to explore the stock's historic and unique rendering of colour, hue and light value in relation  to the American landscape and its architecture.“
