Roger Fenton (1819-1869) was Englandâ s most celebrated and influential photographer during the 1850s, the â golden ageâ of this radically new medium. Fentonâ s majestic pictures of cathedrals, country houses, and varied countryside were without peer in Englandâ as were his views of the royal castles and Houses of Parliament that embodied Britainâ s power. But Fentonâ s choice of subjects ranged more widely still: he was among the first to photograph the Kremlin and other landmarks of Moscow and Kiev; he was commissioned in 1855 to document the Crimean War, producing early war photographs; and he created theatrical Orientalist costume pictures and a startling series of lush still lifes.

Fenton had first studied law and painting, but soon after he took up the camera he was making photographs that were technically superb and highly original in their handling of composition, perspective, atmosphere, and light. Always he strove to demonstrate that photography could equal the art of painting and even surpass it. He was the force behind the founding of the Photographic Society (later the Royal Photographic Society), which worked to advance the profession and encouraged the exhibition of membersâ works throughout Britain. In a career of a single decade, Fenton did much to transform photography into a medium of powerful expression and visual delight.

This exquisitely produced bookâ the first comprehensive publication on Fenton in almost twenty yearsâ presents eighty-five of the artistâ s finest photographs and discusses every aspect of his work and his remarkable career.
