“Color or black-and-white? One-twenty or 35mm? These are only a few of the decisions a photojournalist has to make today.
“For me, one decision is easy –Kodak film. Without it, I couldn’t make the photographs I do.
“I shoot color because that’s what most magazines want. I do black-and-white because I love it. Either way, I’m grateful to Kodak for producing films that see the way I see.
“In the studio and location situations that are controllable, I use 120-size Kodak Ektachrome 64 professional film, because it records with precise accuracy. And I can clip it and have test frames back from the lab in only an hour.
“I’m off in Hong Kong or the Philippines  for The Sunday Times Magazine, shooting a variety of subjects over an extended period, I’ll use  35mm Kodachrome 64 professional film. It’s extremely reliable, and the color is absolutely beautiful.
“When it comes to black-and-white, Tri-X pan film is, for me, the perfect film. I like the way it reproduces on the printed page. In 20 years, it’s never let me down.”
