Colour photograph of a man in safety goggles and white lab coat standing at a bench of chemistry equipment (dip and dunk machine) in the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd Research laboratory, Coburg, on 20 April 1990. It was originally attached to a poster featuring 7 colour photographs of the 'Emulsion Group', who were part of the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd Research team.
Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
This photograph is part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.
