Rochester, NY is a city defined by photography. Once dominated by Kodak, the city now faces a new digital future. Photo City presents a profile of the city told through the varied lives of its photographers.
Home to the Kodak company for over 125 years, Rochester, New York is a city uniquely defined by photography. Photo City focuses on the lives of the city’s photographic and creative community as they struggle to maintain a link to their analogue past and to forge an identity in this new digital age.
Featuring an eclectic cast of characters, from the former factory floor workers to the father of digital photography, this is a film about how a city is shaped by its people. Their personal and professional struggles give us a glimpse of what it means to be a creative today and how in a company town weighed down by its own history, some moments never fade.
