“…while Mr. Benn didn’t set out to assemble a book 40 years later composed exclusively of Kodachrome work, it happened that that work made up the bulk of his best-preserved images.” New York Times LENS blog

“Mr. Benn’s unshowy compositions and the rich, clear colors of his Kodachrome slide-film makes his images seem both timeless and particular.”
Wall Street Journal

“In picture after picture, America emerges with beguiling freshness”
The Independent

“[Kodachrome Memory] conjures a by-gone Americana that’s poignant, humorous, and full of contrasts: society ladies and impoverished families, vintage cars and aerial crop dusters, lonely rebels and flag wavers. And slide shots evince more surprises from a visually rich era.”
American Photo

“Nathan Benn…filled [Kodachrome Memory] with common place objects and people but his images are the product of careful study and imagination. They evoke a sense of time and place and a true feeling of “Americana”. It is a beautiful reflection of the time when both Kodachrome photography and America were celebrated”
Apogee Photo Magazine

“[National Geographic] always had important messages to convey and Benn did his best to oblige. Yet that is not why his best pictures ravish us today: despite the passage of time…what remains are the elemental seductions of his craft, a four-way love affair between America, Kodachrome, Leica and gorgeous light.”
-The Independent
