Description

A Kodachrome colour photograph of an unknown United States airman, taken by JCA Redhead (1886-1954) during World War Two. This United States Army Air Force officer wears the rank insignia of a captain on his shoulder straps. Kodachrome, regarded as the first 'modern' colour process, was announced by Kodak in 1935. Kodachrome film was imported from the USA and was in very short supply during World War Two. As Head of Kodak Ltd's Photo Finishing Laboratory in Harrow, England, Redhead had access to supplies of this scarce colour film.
