    Thoroughly intriguing photos, but wow, that's harsh.

    Thanks for posting the link.

    George Eastman House has Lewis Hine's archive. They have over 10,000 prints, negatives. If you go to GEH's website and look at the detailed descriptions of the actual prints you will find that most are small contact prints from 4x5 or 5x7 negatives. He used a Graflex slr a lot. It doesn't specify but he may have used printing out paper especially on the early work. POP is amazing in that it prints out incredible long tonal scales,it is self masking and was almost always finished with gold toner.

    I never get over the beauty of a contact print. I recently got out my old Ektars and found a really nice old Deardorff 8x10, no substitute for square inches. I also love to take a Crown Graphic out and use the rangefinder for handheld shots.
    I love digital SLRs I use a Nikon D800 to take pictures of my cats, but when the finished print is a piece of polyethylene coated paper inkjet, I only use them for snaps. Real photos need to be printed not scanned onto real paper, paper. My humble opinion. Hope I didn't offend. Peace

    I tend to think that #1 photo could be emulated in digital (echoing what Rick said)....and if one puts enough Engl on it (in the edit, etc). The lighting can also be emulated. I'd think that my 105/2.5 Nikkor would be capable of rendering similar image....wide open or so.....and if not that, then 50/1.8 would. Toning is no big deal. Ha, if one insists on emulating such image with a film camera (like 5x7)...my Voigthlander Rectilinear F5.4 could accomplish similar - all you have to do is put actors in the same place....and maybe 18K light bouncing off a white board. Done!

    Not sure why anyone would want to emulate....go with your own distinct style.

    I am a long time photographer, and I work mostly in digital ().
    Has digital photography been around "a long time?"
