Calgary has a very small Chinatown in comparison to most other cities. Despite it’s small size it has some of Calgary’s oldest, most historic buildings. I shot this series of photos using a Bronica SQ-Am camera and AGFA Optima 100 film. Of all the film emulsions in all the world, AGFA Optima 100 is my favourite. This stock was already very old, expired film when it was soaked in the 2013 floods. It was stored in my basement cold-room, and was submerged for a couple days before I was able to rescue it. Even so, the colours it rendered were fantastic, giving an almost cross processed effect.
