Episode 205: Lived by the Will

George Eastman, known for revolutionizing mainstream photography, lived a multifaceted life. Despite his success in founding the Eastman-Kodak company, his passion for hunting took him far outside of Rochester, NY. In this episode of Hear UR, join us as we take you on a journey inside the George Eastman Museum, through a safari with Eastman himself, and delve into the implications of the Kodak founder’s penchant for hunting, travelling, and collecting animals across the African landscape.
