The First Photograph

first photo

This is it: the oldest surviving photograph in the world.

It was taken by the delightfully alliterative Nicéphore Niépce in 1826, in the Burgundy region of France. It’s called View from the Window at Le Gras. The exposure time is believed to have been hours, or even days.

Cool, huh?

  2. Wow, 1826! And they had absolutely no idea of how huge it would become.
