A painter schooled in Paris, Roger Fenton turned to photography in around 1850. An acquaintance of Queen Victoria, he was sent to capture the Crimean War in 1855. From March to June of that year, Fenton created sanitized but historic images of a bloody, unpopular conflict at the Siege of Sebastopol.

He photographed soldiers, officers, and landscapes that were printed when he returned to England with over 300 images. These were later acquired by the exiled French Duke of Aumale. The photos are some of the first war photos in existence and are on display at Château de Chantilly until the end of February 2022.
