WATER SKIERS 1968

About this photograph

For forty years, the enormous color transparencies that graced Grand Central Terminal in New York City touched the hearts of millions. Today, the Colorama collection represents not only an appealing and believable idealization of American life, but a nuanced and effective use of photographs to create desire for the products and activities they sold. As a museum of the photograph in history and culture, located in the city that Kodak made and made famous the George Eastman Museum is uniquely equipped to celebrate and explore these innovative and seminal advertisements. Now, years after the last Colorama has left Grand Central, a reexamination of these enchanting images offers insight into the histories of photographic practices and technologies, advertising, and the American story. Five hundred and sixty-five Coloramas were produced between 1950 and 1990. We are pleased to share a selection of these Coloramas with a new generation of viewers, who, we hope, will respond, not only as Edward Steichen did in 1950, “agog and smiling, all just feeling good, ” but with a thought to how these productions shaped a generation.
