Agent Shadow’s testers well and truly span the globe, with rolls being snapped by photographers from Japan to Kazakhstan and Singapore to Finland.

In California, we enlisted the help of two mysterious agents known for their enduring dedication to all things analogue.

Their names? Well, they’re clearly contained in a file marked “Top Secret”. All we know is that their consignment of Agent Shadow was used to take a series of very film noir portraits. Practice for a deep cover mission somewhere east of the Vistula? We will await further transmissions…
