4×5 Kodachromes of WWII

A friend clued me into this blog: 4×5 Kodachromes. The lighting and the Kodachrome colors in the 4×5 format make these dramatic images. As was pointed out in the comments, the photos of women factor workers must have been staged – these are essentially propaganda photos for home consumption.  They tell a glamorized yet true story of life at home during WWII. IT is good to see women other than “Rosie the Riveter”!
