Going to See the Governor

Going to See the Governor
Camera: Argus C3 (1940)
Film: Kodak Panatomic X (x-06/1991); 16iso
Process: Xtol; 1+1; 7.5min; 20C
Yuma Territorial Prison, Arizona

I keep thinking that I’ve found the perfect film for the Argus C3. Anything I shoot through this obtuse brick of a camera is suddenly my favorite film. Even emulsions that don’t feel right in any other camera feel perfect in the C3.

Panatomic X is the favorite film of many. I understand why. I’ve never shot a roll that I didn’t love – even in cameras that were less-than-inspiring. But this combination, this strange mix of professional film and thrift store camera is everything that keeps me going.
