World’s first photographer - level 2
The first photographer was born in France in 1765. His first photo shows a view from a window of his house in Burgundy. The photo required an exposure of about eight hours.
We know that he took 16 images, and three of them are now going on show. He took them in the 1820s. The photographer created them by exposing chemicals on metal plates to light. He called this heliography which means drawing with the sun.
Difficult words: exposure (the act of exposing something), expose (to let light come on something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
