This photograph by Szathmari shows Bulgarian soldiers who served with the Russian army during the Crimean War. It is unusual for opposing sides to be depicted by the same photographer, but here Szathmari, as a neutral party and an established artist, has been given greater access and more freedom than might be expected.
