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. They carry the additional burden of their comrades, who dropped along the route from Corregidor, about 70 miles on foot, April 1942.

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.
