actual image size: 32cm x 28cm


Photograph by Roger Fenton (1819-1869). Press was the principal chaplain to the forces throughout the Crimea, he is shown seated (left) outside Lord Raglan's HQ at Balaclava. In 1855, Fenton was commissioned (with royal sanction) by the publisher Thomas Agnew to photograph the Crimean War (1853-1856). 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.
