Horse Posters: Interesting Dates In Photography History
The word "photography" comes from the Greek words "photos" which means "light", and "graphein" which means "to draw." The word was first used by Sir John F.W. Herschel in 1839.
The first modern type of photograph - where light was used to make the image - is credited to a Frenchman named Joseph Nicephore Niepce in approximately 1816 (dates vary). It took eight hours of light exposure to create the image, which then faded away. In approximately 1825 (again, dates vary) he began capturing his first permanent images, one of which was of a man leading a horse.
The first known person to create a photograph with a negative from which numerous prints could be made was Englishman Henry Fox Talbot. He used paper that he sensitized to light, then exposed the paper to light. In 1841 Mr. Talbot patented this process under the name "calotype," which is Greek for beautiful picture.
In 1889 George Eastman invented a flexible film that could be rolled, and the mass-produced box camera for black and white photographs suddenly became a reality. A type of color film, Kodachrome, debuted in 1935.
