My Daguerreotype Boyfriend

2012-11-13 2

When early photography meets extreme hotness… and because having a crush on a living and breathing person is so mainstream.

Presenting My Daguerreotype Boyfriend, a blog that features portraits of handsome* young men taken back in the day when photography wasn’t just a simple point and click process. Notable boyfriends so far include a young Pierre Curie, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Robert Cornelius.

While not all photos are actual daguerreotypes per se, they all possess an old-world charm that reaffirms a girl’s fantasy that her dream guy is a gentleman from another place, another time. Romantic, right?


Nevertheless, we can all agree that men back then knew how to dress sharp eh?

On a similar note, a blog called My Daguerreotype Girlfriend exists, but it has seen far less action than its male counterpart.

So, how about it boys? Shall we do something to remedy the situation?
