The first war photographer:

Although originally known for his architecture and landscape photography, Roger Fenton rose to fame in England when he was dispatched to cover the Crimean War in 1855, therefore becoming the world’s first war photographer. Although Fenton was unable to capture moving subjects due to the limitations of photographic equipment at the time, he was able to photograph portraits and landscape shots. During his time at war, Fenton chose not to photograph dead or injured soldiers. These records also never managed to capture “battles, explosions, devastations, wounds, blood and tears”, partly because of official wish to glamorize the war and shift public attention away from government and military mismanagement. Unfortunately, as soon as the Crimean War was over, public interest in Fenton’s photography seemed to die, with the photographer choosing to leave photography altogether in 1862. Today, however, Fenton isn’t just credited by historians as the world’s first professional war photographer, but his keen artistic eye and influential role in establishing photography as an artistic endeavor is also celebrated.
