Legereenheid in stelling tijdens de winter in de Tweede Brits-Afghaanse oorlog
Burke was one of the first to take photographs in Afghanistan. This was occasioned by the Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878-1880). He travelled with the army and photographed English encampments and Afghan warlords. The photographs came on the market under the title Afghan War Album. The draughtsmen and wood engravers of illustrated magazines, such as The Graphic and the Illustrated London News, used these photographs as their models.
