Joseph Nicephore Niepce was born in 1765 in Burgundy, France.In 1821, Niepce studied the properties of Syrian asphalt. To obtain the image Joseph mixed asphalt with lavender oil and treated the surface of the copper plate with the mixture. Niepce called the process “heliography”. In 1822, Niepce announced the receipt of the first images.
In the same year, Louis Jacques Daguerre, the decorator of the Paris Opera, presented a new diorama to Parisians. Daguerre dreamed of the possibility of fixing the image. The passion was so strong that a workshop was opened in the diorama room. Louis eagerly set to work, having become acquainted in the course of experiments with many of the outstanding opticians of his time. So Daguerre learned about the successful experiments of Joseph Niepce.
On December 14, 1829, Joseph Niepce offered Daguerre a contract.
On July 5, 1833, Joseph Niepce died. After another five years, Dager completed the creation of the technology, which he gave his own name.
