Daguerreotype  Invented by Louis Daguerre in 1839, the daguerreotype served as the first method of photography.

Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre November 1787 – 10 July was a French artist and photographer, recognized for his invention of the daguerreotype process of photography. He became known as one of the fathers of photography.

The earliest reliably dated photo­graph of a person, taken in spring 1838 by Daguerre. Though it shows Paris' busy Boul­e­vard du Temple, the long exposure time (about ten or twelve minutes) meant that moving traffic cannot be seen; however, the two men at lower left (one apparently having his boots polished by the other) remained still long enough to be dist­inctly visible.

O daguerreótipo foi o primeiro processo fotográfico a ser anunciado e comercializado ao grande público. Foi divulgado em 1839, tendo sido substituído por processos mais práticos e baratos apenas no início da década de 1860. (Louis Daguerre)
