Description

Photograph by Roger Fenton. In 1853, the British Museum asked Fenton to document parts of their collection as their official photographer. He went on to take many photographs of classical busts, skeletons, Assyrian tablets and other works of art. Fenton 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 as well as many superb landscapes, architectural studies and still lifes.
