Commentary
Members of the Holland Voluntary Air Defense in Amsterdam poke through the ruins of bomb-wrecked buildings in search of bodies. They came with all possible speed after a lightning Nazi attack. The whole of Holland, with the exception of Zeeland, fell before Hitler’s hordes a few short days after the invasion of the lowlands started, May 1940.

Technique
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.

Materials
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.
