Plowing through water with their rifles held ready, “raiders” pass through an archway, East Coast training center, September 1942
Vintage ferrotyped gelatin silver print on paper
6 11/16 x 8 5/16 in. (16.99 x 21.11 cm)
With all the grim vigor with which United Nations Command and American Rangers attacked Dieppe, U.S. troops at this training center stage a “raid” on a fortress near the center, recently. They stormed moats under the simulated strafing of planes, climbed walls under “heavy fire,” “fought” in the streets with defending forces, and even captured “hostages”. Plowing through water and with their rifles held ready, the “raiders” pass through an archway, East Coast training center, September 1942.
Sheet: 7 x 8 7/8
Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
