Commentary
Somewhere in Russia: crudely dressed peasant women of the Cossack village of Krymskaya smile gaily as they welcome Red Army troops to their town. The visiting heroes are greeted with small bouquets, kind words and the blessing of the simple people. One proud mother allowed a warrior to hold her child as he marched through the village.

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.
