Event Description

The National Army Museum is devoting its new White Space Gallery to an exhibition of the work of four pioneering war photographers: Felice Beato, Roger Fenton, James Robertson and Josh McCosh. War photography has indelibly etched on to the public consciousness many dramatic and shocking images. First Shots documents war photography when it was still in its infancy. Using some of the earliest shots from the Collection, it will explore what drove its pioneers; the technical, social and environmental pressures which shaped their work and the impact the images they produced had upon culture and society.

Visitors may find some images in this exhibition disturbing
