In this black and white print, we see a group of nurses arriving to the Middle East to assist in medical services for World War II troops. The focus point has the woman framed in the middle as they seem to be waiting for a train. This photograph has a candid appearance, almost as if the photographer voiced themselves loudly enough to have the women closest to turn around and smile for the camera. It’s important that we pay attention to the body language of these few nurses facing the camera. Although the description clarifies that these nurses are just arriving, the fact that they are smiling for a photograph gives off the notion that they have yet to see the overwhelming destruction and violence of the war. These women made large sacrifices to help the wounded. It would be interesting to see the difference in appearance if, in fact, these nurses were leaving the war.
