Description

Rusian cottage near the Dreiper, Kiev, c 1850s. Photograph by Roger Fenton, printed on salt paper from a waxed paper negative. In 1855, Fenton (1819-1869) was commisioned (with royal sanction) by the publisher Thomas Agnew to photograph the Crimean War. This was the first extensive documentation of a war, with over 350 images produced. However, some do not see Fenton as a true war photographer as he only took positive images of the war.
