'Kodak City' documents former imaging giant's headquarters
Kodak City documents former imaging giant's headquarters
Photo by Catherine Leutenegger, 2007.
While many mid-sized American cities have experienced the aches and pains of a large population shift from the urban core to the suburbs, there's a particular poignancy to the abandoned storefronts in downtown Rochester, New York. The city's name, at least among the photographic community, is inextricably tied to the name Eastman Kodak.
Swiss photographer Catherine Leutenegger spent time photographing Rochester and Kodak's headquarters, first in 2007 and again in 2012. She answered a few questions about the project (available for purchase in book form) - see some of her work and find out more about what inspired it.
