THE FIRST PHOTOGRAPH OF HISTORY
The importance of photography in recent history lies in the fact that it brought us closer to other realities, other perspectives, it attracted our objective attention and informed us of situations in which we would not know, which has given us greater sensitivity; and although it has sometimes been used to refer to lies, it has become a fundamental tool of journalism, art, narrative, documentation and daily life.
There are photographs that have changed the story, or that have been used to change, then the most iconic pictures of the story:
Niepce first photo 1826
This is the first photograph in history, made by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce in 1826 by the method he called Heliography, in which he captured the view from his window. Niepce began to experiment with barns sensitive to light, with silver chloride, but the images vanished at once, until he tried with Judea bitumen and in 1822 he began to achieve lasting images; unfortunately these first negatives were destroyed when trying to posit them. Finally, in 1826, the image of the roof of the neighbor was parked, which is considered the Primeira Photography of History; and all this he did just for being a bad cartoonist that led him to a method that allowed to capture reality in a faithful way. Again our abilities do not make strong;)
