Pioneering photography

Understand the story of Roger Fenton, a respected photographer whose published photographs showed the impact of war to the general public for the first time. His images of the Crimean War, taken in 1855 created the genre of war photography with Fenton leading the way in capturing the subject with subtlety and respect. We produced two films showing two fascinating photographic processes - a must for any photographer. Head to Roger Fenton’s Photographs of the Crimea at the Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace now.
