Tired and grimy from their struggles on Iwo Jima beaches, these Marine Corps engineers takes a few minutes off for chow, March 1945
Vintage ferrotyped gelatin silver print on paper
Tired and grimy from their struggles on the Iwo Jima beaches, this group of Marine Corps engineers takes a few minutes off for chow. This sector is relatively secure, but the enemy lies in wait over the volcanic ridges. Shortly after this picture was snapped, the men were on the go against the Japanese again, paving the way for their buddies’ march to Tokyo, March 1945.
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.
