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?
