Shadows of War - Roger Fenton's Photographs of the Crimea, 1855
4 August - 26 November 2017
This fascinating exhibition by pioneering Victorian photographer Roger Fenton is recognised as among the most significant visual accounts of conflict ever produced. Travelling in a wine merchant's van, which had been converted into a dark room and sleeping quarters, and equipped with 36 chests of cameras and glass plates, Fenton, considered the father of 'war photography', captured the destruction of the Crimean War through powerfully moving portraits of exhausted troops and images of desolate battlefields.
Drawn entirely from the Royal Collection, the exhibition comprises over 60 photographs acquired by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, as well as a beautifully narrated multimedia guide, with reflections on Fenton's images by His Royal Highness Prince Harry.
