Having just been introduced

by two men working independently of each other

— Henry Fox Talbot in England

who claimed to invent

(negative) photography

and Louis Daguerre, in France,

the (positive) silver-plated copper image —

photography had

a multitude of possible identities

in the United States.

 

The daguerreotype

became one of the most popular methods

after it was introduced in the United States,

with studios established all over New York.

Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre (1787–1851)

and the Invention of Photography

 

daguerreotypes

 

Each daguerreotype

is a remarkably detailed,

one-of-a-kind photographic image

on a highly polished,

silver-plated sheet of copper,

sensitized with iodine vapors,

exposed in a large box camera,

developed in mercury fumes,

and stabilized (or fixed)

with salt water or "hypo"

(sodium thiosulphate).

 

Although Daguerre

was required to reveal,

demonstrate, and publish

detailed instructions for the process,

he wisely retained the patent

on the equipment necessary

to practice the new art.
