A Moment in Photographic History:
Antoine François Jean Claudet was born August 12, 1797. Claudet, a student of Louis Daguerre, was a French photographer living in England where he was one of the few people licensed to produce daguerreotypes. The reason there were only a few was that Daguerre, wishing to protect his invention, registered its patent in Britain on August 12, 1839. A week later, daguerreotypes were declared "Free to the World" (except in Britain slowing the development of photography in that nation. Great Britain was to be the only place the patent was enforced.
A Photographic Quote of Note:
They . . . asked me: "'How do you make your pictures?'
I was puzzled . . . "I said, 'I don't know, it's not important.'
