imagesLouis Daguerre was born on November 18, 1787 in Cormeilles-en-Parisis, France. He is more commonly known in France than the U.S. He was a famous artist and photographer back in his time. He acquired his fame for his great invention of the  daguerreotype process of photography. This was  a famous process used to take and create great pictures. It was the start of our camera basically and consists of a camera like object taking ‘good’ quality photos in black and white. Because of this great invention, Louis Daguerre is considered one of the fathers of photography. This made me feel stupid because I have never heard of this photographer before in my life. He got his education at the French Academy of Sciences which is a very impressive and academic school nowadays. While Studying there, he published some work for their school newspaper with great pictures. He traveled all around the country of France to cities like Cormeilles-en-Parisis, Bry-sur-Marne, and the big, Paris. His work was unique for his time. Since he was around in the late 1700s, he did not have much advanced technology available to him. Therefore his work was still great for his time.
