The History of Photography

A lot has changed since Nicophore Niepce made the world's first permanant photgraph in France in the year 1827. Today, film seems like it's on its way out, cameras have turned digital and just about everyone has one these days since almost all cell phones come with a camera. In the beginning, photography was messy, there were lots of chemicals involved and glass plates to juggle, everything had to be done quickly or the image faded away. Today, images are stored on a memory card and virtually the only people who work with film and chemicals are art photographers.

This guide will help you find books, articles, websites and photographs.
