"the First Photograph, or more specifically, the earliest known surviving photograph made in a camera" which was taken by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce in 1826 or 1827.

"The image depicts the view from an upstairs window at Niépce's estate, Le Gras, in the Burgundy region of France. Learn more about the First Photograph through the links below."
