    It's a long list, isn't it? Plenty of inspiration, and radically different styles, to be found. Ullophot, best of luck... and share your results when you have some?

    I will share results when I have something worth sharing. It's very much of a struggle on multiple levels right now. Lots to learn.

    I have a few books done by Lawrence Chrismas (careful on the spelling) that have some excellent work done with mostly 8x10, but some medium format as well - portraits of Canadian miners. Well worth looking into. "Coaldust Grins", "Alberta Miners", and if you can get your hands on a copy of a catalog published by the Edmonton Art Gallery in 1983 "Canadian Coal Miners: Photographs by Lawrence Chrismas" isbn 088950038X, do it! Fabulous photography and beautifully printed.

    In those sorts of environments, maybe better to start shooting without research, evolve, and look later at other's work...

    I'd take a personal journey first...

    I had read a little bio of Catherina Opie and examine her images in one of my Art class. My university was located in San Francisco and I was attending to earn my Bachelor of Fine Arts. Till covid I went online which saved me driving to San Francisco ever week.
