Roger Fenton (1819–1869), English photographer best known for his pictures of the Crimean War, which were the first extensive photographic documents of a war. Fenton studied painting and then law. Following a trip in 1851 to Paris, where he probably visited with the photographer Gustave Le Gray, he returned to England and was inspired to pursue photography. In the winter of 1855 his governmental connections as the founder (1853) and first honorary secretary of the Royal Photographic Society helped him gain an appointment as official photographer of the Crimean War.
