In roughly 30 years beginning in 1880, Eastman changed the world of photography. Instead of cameras the size of microwave ovens, and the need for a tent, chemicals, glass plates and enormous patience, the camera alone priced at nearly $50, Eastman ultimately introduced a camera that cost only $1 with film priced at 15 cents a roll. All the customer had to do was point the camera and press a button. Essentially he democratized photography, making it available to people from all walks of life. And in the process he became one of the 10 wealthiest men in America. Award-winning author Daniel Alef tells the story of Eastmans rise from poverty to the summit of success, and his unfortunate demise. [1,425-word Titans of Fortune article]
