A Street Photograph From Every Year Since Its Inception (1838-2019)

Written by

 

In 1838 or 1839 the first photograph of figures in the street was recorded by Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre in one of a pair of daguerreotype views taken from his studio window of the Boulevard du Temple in Paris. And with it, street photography was born.

In this fascinating compilation by Guy Jones, we see a street photograph for every year since it’s ‘birth’ from 1838-2019.
