The ABC of Photography – Daguerre, Louis

Daguerre, Louis

Louis Daguerre (1787-1851) was an artist and inventor who devised one of the earliest photographic processes, the daguerreotype, announced in 1839. It was made by coating a silver-plated copper sheet with light-sensitive silver iodide and exposing it in a camera to create a positive image.
