About the image:

Witness. Mail on Sunday January 1989.

Amish children living in the Conewango Valley, near Niagara Falls in New York State USA were being struck down by a whooping-cough epidemic. The Amish, who shun modern drugs and vaccines, were treating the children with lemon juice and honey and three babies died, becoming the first whooping-cough fatalities in America for three years.

It was big news as this tragedy was happening only 300 miles north of New York City, where life was so different it could have been on a different planet. The Amish try not to use machines of any kind including cameras so although they welcome tourists, children are always told to not to pose for photographers… but this little girl couldn’t resist peeping at what was going on.

The picture was a British Press Awards winner the following year.

The printing:

C-type prints are notable for their continuous tone and vibrant colours. The first widely used colour print process, modern c-type prints are printed from high resolution digital files produced from drum-scanned negatives or transparencies.

C-type prints use dye-based photographic papers and should not be confused with inkjet, or giclée prints. Read more about C-type printing HERE.
