This elegant program artistically unfolds the history of photography, including the contributions of Joseph Niepce, Louis Daguerre, Fox Talbot, and the Lumieres, with an emphasis on the processes involved in creating photographs. The chemistry of modern film development is described in detail, using computer imaging to illustrate the mechanics of the exposure and development processes. In addition, the recently rediscovered Niepce process is demonstrated for the first time on film, along with the daguerreotype process.
