How I Got to Here

The Story of How I Became a Digital Artist & a First-hand Witness to Photographic History at the Eastman Kodak Company
by Peter J. Sucy

During a nearly 28 year career with Kodak, Peter was involved with advanced technologies like video imaging, digital photography, computer graphics, desktop publishing, systems design, software design, thermal printing, interoperability and 3D imaging. From 1985 to 1990, Peter shared a cubicle wall with Steve Sasson, inventor of the first digital camera in 1975. They would collaborate on numerous white papers for product advancement and push for the transition to digital (and computer-based photography) during this period. This period and this group was the genesis of digital photography at Eastman Kodak. This new Kodak Division, called the Electronic Photography Division, was founded in 1986 shortly after Kodak lost the Polaroid Instant Film suit. Prior to that it was known as the Consumer Electronics Division.
These tiles represent events selected by Peter that had an impact on his art and some that impacted the future of digital photography.
