Join Sophie Gordon, Head of Photographs, as she discusses Roger Fenton's photographs of the Crimean War, taken in 1855. The lecture will look at the commercial motivations behind Fenton's work and the public display of the photographs across Britain in 1855–6. It will also highlight the emotional content of this pioneering photography by comparing his images with the work of other Crimean War photographers. This event will include speech-to-text transcription.
