Book DescriptionLouis Jacques Mande Daguerre is perhaps the most famous for the preservation of photographic images. He spent most of his life as an artist. He manipulated light and worked with chemicals of his paints. He sketched images from a camera obscura and created realistic drawings. Using the camera obscura, he made an early photograph. In partnership with Niepce, he sought to make a lasting image, even after Niepce died in 1833. Between 1835 and 1837, he perfected his process, an early form of photography.
