Interesting Facts about the career

  •  The first “photographic paper” was made of asphalt. More precisely, asphalt varnish was applied on the copper or the glass plate.

  • Camera Obscura, which became the prototype of the modern camera,
    is used up to this day for the production of integrated circuits and as a
    special film camera.

  •  The first aerial photography was carried out by French inventor Turnache in 1858. He shot Paris from the balloon.

  • The most expensive (confirmed) price ever paid for a photograph was a whopping $4,338,500 (about $6.84 million today) paid for "Rhein II," an image by Andreas Gursky, in 1999. Gursky digitally removed pedestrians and a factory from the photo, then made a 73 by 143-inch print and mounted it on acrylic glass before framing it. It shows the Lower Rhine flowing across the image, with green fields and a gray sky on either side and was the second in a series of six.

  • In 1839, Louis Daguerre (yes, that Daguerre) took an image of the Boulevard du Temple in Paris. Because of the long exposure times of early processes, capturing humans was generally not possible or at least not practical. However, by luck, a man getting his shoes shined and the shoe-shine happened to stay in the same spot throughout the exposure, and as such, they became the first humans ever to appear in an image.
