View from the Window at Le Gras
The reconstruction of the oldest photography

The very first photography is named “View from the Window at Le Gras,” and was taken by the French inventor Joseph Nicéphore Niépce from his window in 1826 at Saint-Loup-de-Varennes. He took that photography with a camera that he made by himself. For all of you that you want to see this photography, it will go on display at the Reiss-Engelhorn museum in Mannheim, Germany as part of the show “The Birth Of Photography.”
