Photograph of the South Transept of York Minster, taken by Roger Fenton (1819-1869), showing the Minster after repairs after a serious fire. Following the growth of the railways in Britain in the mid-nineteenth century, travel became much easier and more affordable. Fenton photographed many popular tourist attractions and beauty spots. He was a founding member of the Royal Photographic Society and one of the most influential photographers of the 1850s. He is best known as one of the first war photographers, from his work in the Crimea in 1855. However, he also took many highly-regarded photographs of the Royal Family and the collections of the British Museum as well as many superb landscapes, architectural studies and still lifes.
