Pasha & Baydere Gordon Baldwin examines this work by Roger Fenton Roger Fenton's photograph Pasha and Bayadere is a fascinating image in its own right and is an expression of a more general Orientalist craze that grew steadily stronger during the nineteenth century in Europe. In his rich and detailed study, Baldwin explains how this image of a seated man and a dancing woman embodies themes and motifs that can be found in the work of nineteenth-century artists from Eugene Delacroix to John Frederick Lewis to Alfred Lord Tennyson. He has also brought to light significant new information about the life and career of Fenton, the important Victorian photographer best known for his photographs of the Crimean War. About the Author Gordon Baldwin is associate curator of photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum. He is the author of Looking at Photographs: A Guide to Technical Terms (Getty and OUP, 1991).
