This informal portrait of Louis Daguerre cleverly shows the scenic artist and pioneering photographer with the subject of a world-famous photographic image made by him in 1838. The view from his window seen in colour in this picture, became a black and white photograph of the boulevard which fortuitously captured the first ever human forms in a photographic image: the bootblack polishing a man’s shoes on the pavement corner on the left.
