What is War photography ?
War photography involves photographing armed conflict and its effects on people and places.
Photographers who participate in this genre may find themselves placed in harm's way, and are sometimes killed trying to get their pictures out of the war arena.
The first official attempts at war photography were made by the British government at the start of the Crimean War. In March 1854 Gilbert Elliott was commissioned to photograph views of the Russian fortifications along the coast of the Baltic Sea
Roger Fenton was the first official war photographer and the first to attempt a systematic coverage of war for the benefit of the public.
