KODAK INDIAN MAGAZINE
“So disappointing were the entries for the competition this time that the judges were frankly incredulous. …One reason maybe the inability of amateur photographers to obtain as much film as they desire. Now more than ever before is the time you must economise on films by taking only those pictures that are absolutely worthwhile.”
Aimed at providing a strong resource base for amateur photography in India this issue of the Kodak Indian magazine from 1943 features a range of material from practical data on the processing of film, photographs by the readers as well as a section on “criticism of Readers’ prints”. The writers in the issue include notable names such as Dr G. Thomas, who established the Federation of Indian Photography in 1953. Quite notable in the magazine is the inclusion of technical specifications of each image, including the time of capture, type of film and camera settings.
