Arguably one of the earliest photographs taken of a human, this new discovery of a photo taken by Charles Fontayne and William Porter way, way back in 1848 is quite certainly one of the most interesting tidbit we've heard recently. Read on for more!
When we’re defending and/or preaching our analogue ways to our friends, we always say that our emulsions and the prints that result from it stand the test of time. This statement is given a whole lot more meaning with the recent (re)discovery of a landscape daguerreotype of 1848 Cincinnati. The photo itself is incredibly sharp and contains tons of detail, as you can see here. You can actually zoom in and catch the people of yesteryear doing their thing.
Here’s a close-up of the people in the photo who were at a time, considered to be the first humans ever photographed but the credit to that goes to Louis Daguerre, the inventor of the daguerreotype process himself, in this 1838 photo he took of Paris. How’s that for a history lesson, eh?

Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
Last year, Armin Amirian talked to Lomography about his motivations as an artist, his inspiration for his work and the difficulty of pursuing his passion in the society he belongs to.
