The first photograph ever is a heliograph made by Nicéphor Niépce in 1825 of a rooftop in France. Its an extremely early example and the oldest surviving object in the history of photography.
Despite my close relationship with this photograph, I have never actually seen it in person – until now.
Come along to Austin Texas and see the earliest surviving photograph in history.
