Vintage ferrotyped gelatin silver print on paper
P2019.21.942 and P2019.21.943 were both assigned the collector number WW2USSR-085. They are two different photographs.
Taken prisoner on the Russian Front, these Nazis don’t look too unhappy about being out of the war. All weary, most of them ill-clad, and some wounded, the Germans huddle together as they wait to be transported to a prisoner-of-war camp, February 1944.
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.
