Description

In March 1855, Roger Fenton, a former solicitor and founding member of what is now known as the Royal Photographic Society, travelled to war-torn Crimea to capture the brutality of war through the medium of photgraphy, one of the first to do so.

This new publication will bring these together, along with other never before published objects and images, for the very first time. It will also highlight the impact of the Crimean War in the UK throughout 1855-6 and its long terms effects on both British foreign policy, the royal family and na – tional feeling toward the documented realities of war.
