Inventions of Photography - Chapter Two - The Daguerreotype

On the second day of Christmas, photography gave to me – the first photograph.

A note from the filmmakers:

To better understand the complex history of photography this series is divided into chapters. Each chapter focuses on a key photographic process and includes inspiring examples of the process. The first is Niépce’s heliograph: View From A Window at Le Gras, commonly attributed as the “first photograph”, it was made nearly 200 years ago and still exists to this day.

The documentary series also focuses on photography’s fascinating array of inventors. Louise Daguerre, a Parisian showman, created the first commercially successful photographic process, the Daguerreotype. The world hasn’t been the same since.
