The last roll of Kodachrome slide film ever manufactured has been developed and will be the subject of an upcoming National Geographic documentary. The roll was given to photographer Steve McCurry, who captured the iconic Kodachrome image “The Afghan Girl” for National Geographic in 1984 (pictured above). The content of the final roll is undisclosed, though it was revealed that the first and last images were taken in New York and the images in between, in India. Listen to NPR’s story on Steve McCurry and the retirement of Kodachrome on All Things Considered.
