Most of the photos on this site were extracted from a small format of 35 mm, medium format, of 5 x 5 cm Hasselblad or large format as 4 x 5 inch Sinar negative (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) and exist also in color. The images were digitally adjusted for contrast and color in Photoshop before being compressed and turned into the jpegs you see here.
