This post is about photography but brought to you on my bike.
The Eastman Mansion is of course the home George Eastman of Eastman Kodak built for himself after the sales of the Brownie Camera and the celluloid film stock he’d developed made him the tenth richest man in America.
He was an amature chemist who brought photgraphy from the realm of the huge land cameras and colloidal coatings to a package you could carry with you and film you developed off of a roll. I loved Kodak Kodachrome film and I always liked the warmth of their Gold film as well.
George Eastman was a bit of a prickly figure but my theory is he was OCD or Asperger’s or both which would explain his need to micromanage and his love of numbers and data.
