All the Mighty World: Photographs of Roger Fenton, 1852-1960

shows photos of one of the most important photographers of the 19th century. Fenton photographed the English countryside, country houses, cathedrals, the royal family, still lifes, and figures in Asian costume. His photos documenting the Crimean War, among the first ever to depict war, convey the chaos and bleakness of the front. For unknown reasons, Fenton retired from photography in 1862. He died in 1869 at the age of 50. (National Gallery of Art)
