Paris-based filmmaker Lee Shulman is on a mission to preserve old photographic negatives and slides from the 60s up to the digital age. Due to the nature of colour photography and the chemicals used on the film when it’s exposed to light, the images will fade away over a period of about 50 years.
With the help of book editor Emmanuelle Halkin, Shulman has salvaged roughly 400, 000 Kodacrome-colour slides from flea markets and personal archives. That collection will be further whittled down to a curated selection to be scanned, catalogued and enjoyed for years to come. Check out some of their great finds below!
