On a summer day in 1826, at his country estate about 340 kilometers southeast of Paris, Joseph Nicéphore Niépce set up his camera obscura and projected the image of his courtyard onto a pewter plate coated with a light-sensitive material. For eight hours, the lens focused light from the sun, chemically fixing the areas where the light struck the plate to capture the view of a pigeon house, a pear tree, a barn roof, and an extended wing of his house.
