Bataan Death March: Nearing the end of a grim journey, a thinning file of prisoners approaches Camp O'Donnell, the Japanese prisoner of war camp in Capas, Tarlac province, Philippines.

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.
