Niepce, Joseph Nicéphore


Born Mar. 7, 1765, in Châlon-sur-Saône; died there July 3, 1833. French inventor in photography.

Niepce was the first to invent a method of fixing the image obtained in a camera obscura. In this method, developed during the 1820’s, he used a silver-coated copper plate covered with a layer of light-sensitive bitumen. In 1829 he concluded an agreement with L. J. M. Daguerre to collaborate on improving his invention.
