The first person ever photographed?!!?!

November 4, 2010

For some reason I can’t link directly to the video (sorry guys), but check this out! Goto and type in the search “First person ever photographed”, and in the search results it should be the first link.

    I first saw this photo decades ago in a book on the history of photography. May have even been one of my art history textbooks in university back in the 70s. It was listed then as the first photograph of a human being.

    Odd that people are now acting like it is a new discovery.

    we learned about this in the history of photography class. i think you’d probably find it pretty interesting if you need another advanced elective.
