I really love the hazy quality of the scene surrounding the men in the closeups and I'm unsure how that was achieved (if indeed something specific was done).
The photographs were taken on an old Flexaret Prontor II using Ilford Delta 3200 speed 120mm film. A combination of low powered lighting, existing early morning haze, and stand developing for lower contrast were used here. However I do find that working with a higher speed film/sensor does enhance the effect of aerial perspective in an image due to the increase in grain which has a sort of sharp, but out of focus/distorted kind of quality.
Hope this helps :)
