Pam Roberts: Roger Fenton (1819-1869) and the still life tradition
Pam Roberts explores the work of photographer Roger Fenton. Despite the cumbersome nature of mid/late 19th century photographic technology, the still life genre was used as both a traditional and experimental form during this period, especially so by Roger Fenton. Fenton practised every aspect of photography during his ten-year career and only fully turned his attention to still life in 1860 producing large format still life prints that emphatically stated his artistic credentials.
