This photograph of Boulevard du Temple in Paris was made in 1838 by Louis Daguerre, He’s the guy that invented the daguerreotype process of photography. So appart from being a very early photo, it’s also the first photograph to ever have a human being in it. Because the image needed a massive exposure time of over ten minutes, all the people, carriages, and other moving things disappear from the scene. Butn some lucky guy stood around getting his shoes shined long enough to come out, in the bottom left hand corner also you can see a faded image of the shoe shiner but as he is partly moving hes more blurred.
Lucky guy stood around long enough to get into the history books being the first photographed man ever shame his identity is unknown.
