First Photographed Human, Ever

First photo of a human being

Nov 22 2011

“Boulevard du Temple”, taken by Daguerre in 1838 in Paris, was the first photograph of a person. The image shows a street, but because of the over ten minute exposure time the moving traffic does not appear. The exceptions are the man and shoe-shine boy at the bottom left, and two people sitting at a table nearby who stood still long enough to have their images captured. Simply amazing!
