I saw this roll of developed Kodak Super XX sitting at an antique store for three dollars. As I said on my philosophy page, “A photograph is one of the few evidence for anything or any moments ever existed, the way they visually did.” Instead of letting it sit in the store not knowing what’s going to happened with it, I decided to rescue it myself, I simply can not think of a better solution. Now I can show the world those moments in history, the whole roll without any omission, while most of us never knew those moments ever existed.
Since a photograph does not have any narrative ability, and it only describe lights on surface. I am going to use my imagination to narrate on this roll of film, or you can jump right onto the photographs and use your own.
- Kodak Super XX is discontinued in 1958 , that should indicate that this roll of film ‘should’ have been taken before 1958, but after WWII.
- On the side is said Kodak Velox Paper, that would make it circa 1950s-60s.
- The film is fogged, so it was either stored in a hot location when he was using the film, or he used expired film, or he didn’t develop this roll a long time after he shot it.
- I believe the photo was photographed by a U.S. serviceman that served in Japan. And he finished the roll after he went home to America, somewhere cold and snows in the winter (I am leaning towards Michigan, where I purchased this roll of film, but that really doesn’t mean anything).
- Reader Dave Pointed out this is Yokohama Japan, You can see Jack and Queen towers, and Isezakicho shopping street.
Since this roll is uncut, and I do not want to cut it, I had to ditch my Epson for the first time and scanned it creatively.
